    Perovskites only have one problem, which can be solved: Their production efficiency degrades rapidly. While boron/phosphorus doped silicon can produce power for 30+ years, the practical degradation of perovskite ink is under 2 years at present. It's getting better – and the cost will be such that it will be cost effective to replace the coating in 5-8 years.

    What about the fact that they contain led?! I know for a fact that in their grant applications the researchers mention that they plan to research for perovskites led free before they are deployed in applications; however there was no mention of that in this talk…

    If this was recorded near to publishing date, this talk isn't much change from the year previous at a TED talk.
    I sadly think the funding isn't there. Or the tech isn't as advertised.
