Inorganic–organic hybrid perovskite solar cells, a low-cost viable substitute to conventional silicon technology, have seen an unparalleled efficiency improvement within a span of few years due to their unique tunable properties. These hybrid structures are greatly influenced by nanomaterials /nanostructures in determining their properties. Nanostructures implemented into sensitizing, hole transporting and electron selective layers in these devices, aid in increasing surface area-to-volume ratio, facilitates charge accumulation, and transport through interfaces. Nanocarbons are seen as potential alternatives to organic hole conductors, boasting inexpensive earth-abundant components, and good stability. Perovskite devices have prospects of becoming an important source of clean energy in near future.
