The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) is proposing to provide funding to Rice University to design and develop a halide hybrid perovskite-based photoelectrochemical cell (HaP-PEC). The technology would incorporate a novel type of 3D/2D heterostructure perovskite solar cell, which would be developed to be water resistant and have a higher performance efficiency (e.g. solar-to-hydrogen (STH) conversion efficiency), as compared to current technologies. The project would be completed over three Budget Periods, with a Go/No-Go Decision Point in between each BP.
