Abstract: For around 40 years, silicon photovoltaic (PV) cells have been used to harvest indoor light to power consumer electronics with low power consumptions such as pocket calculators. Besides directly powering electronic devices, PV cells could be used to charge batteries/capacitors to extend the sustainability of higher power consumption electronics. More recently, there have been significant increase in electronic devices for Internet-of-Things (IoT) applications, and the devices could be powered by indoor PV cells. The IoT can be crucial components in developing smart homes, offices, and buildings. Compared with silicon photovoltaics, organic and perovskite PV cells have promising potential for low-cost fabrication. Importantly, in the last few years, it has been shown that they work particularly well under indoor lighting conditions, with significantly better performance than traditional silicon PV cells. The aim of this chapter is to introduce this exciting and emerging application of organic and perovskite PV devices.
