Researchers from Princeton Universitys Engineering School developed the first perovskite solar cell with a commercial viable lifetime. Perovskites (PSCs) are lightweight and flexible semiconductors with a crystalline structure. Between 2009 and 2022, research has helped increase the efficiency of perovskite solar cells from 3% to over 25%. Perovskite solar cells are currently unavailable on the commercial market due to their fragility and lack of long-term durability.

Despite the high prevalence of corporate sustainability goals and rising energy costs, only 3.5% of the commercial and industrial complex currently have solar according to Wood Mackenzie. According to G&A Institute and Perillon, 92% of S&P 500 companies, 88% of public companies, and 67% of private companies have sustainability goals. Simultaneously, energy costs have been rapidly increasing. In March 2022, The Guardian found that traditional energy costs, particularly natural gas, increased by 24% in the past year and the cost of general electricity increased by 9%. A combination of increasing energy costs and the decreasing cost of renewable energy now means that œsolar power is now the cheapest electricity in history according to the International Energy Agency (IEA). Solar energy has the ability to both accomplish companies sustainability goals and reduce costs for the company and their consumers.
