Xiamen Weihua Solar Co.,Ltd.

Weihua Solar Founded in August 2010 and based in Xiamen China, Xiamen Weihua Solar Co.,Ltd. is a company focusing on research & development, production and sales of perovskite solar cells, with RMB 10 million registered capital. The technology of the company is based on the perovskite solar cell technologies of École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL) and Swiss Federal Laboratories for Materials Science (EMPA). The founder & CEO Dr. Bin Fan was a student of Prof Michael Grätzel, the latter was the inventor of dye sensitized solar cell (DS History Founded in August 2010 and based in Xiamen China, Xiamen Weihua Solar Co.,Ltd. is a company focusing on research & development, production and sales of perovskite solar cells, with RMB 10 million registered capital. The technology of the company is based on the perovskite solar cell technologies of École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL) and Swiss Federal Laboratories for Materials Science (EMPA). The founder & CEO Dr. Bin Fan was a student of Prof Michael Grätzel, the latter was the inventor of dye sensitized solar cell (DSSC). The company initially worked on organic photovoltaics (OPV) and now has transferred its full attention to perovskite solar cells. From October 2013, Weihua Solar started the partnership with Merck. Merck provides materials and some patents to Weihua Solar. In 2014, the company together with Xiamen University published a paper on magnetron sputtered zinc oxide nanorods as cathode interlayer for perovskite planar-heterojunction solar cells (Applied Materials and Interfaces, 2014, 6, 20585). On January 7, 2015, the company fabricated the first batch of perovskite solar cell modules using coating and printing methods based on its own equipment developed by the company. In May 2015, the company started to build its pilot production line for perovskite solar cells. The pilot production line is composed of laser, coating machine, screen printer, laminater and equipment for heating and crystallization. The company then started to fabricate prototypes with a size of 45x65 cm. 45 x 65 cm prototype from Weihua Solar based on the slot-die coating technology #-# On 6th August, 2015, the record efficiency of perovskite cell in Weihua Solar reached 20.3%. The company completed its first outdoor power station on 25 September 2015. The power station is made up of 32 perovskite solar panels with each area of 0.24 m^{2}. The purpose of building the power station is to test the stability of perovskite solar cells in the ambient environment. In March 2016, the company has a record of 10.3% for the 5x5 cm module.
