This paper aims at providing an updated overview of the main achievements in the development of solar cells based on Cu2ZnSn(S,Se)4 (CZTS(Se)) kesterite absorbers obtained by electrodeposition. Although undoubtedly challenging, the ultimate goal is to learn from the past works and build a solid framework for future advances in this field. What is the reason for the lower efficiency of electrodeposited CZTS(Se)-based devices (8%) compared to the world record efficiency achieved with a hydrazine-based solution approach (12.6%)? Can this gap be filled, or there are intrinsic limitations for this achievement? The review is divided into the three main electrodeposition approaches: sequential elemental layer, alloy co-deposition, and chalcogenide co-deposition. It is argued that considerable technical challenges must be overcome for the latter approach to be successfully applied. [less ▲]
