Opvius and the World of OPV
The future of organic photovoltaics is discussed in this article, including information from an IDTechEx interview with Opvius.
Imec and Solliance's perovskite PV modules achieve 12.4%
The module efficiency was measured under long-term maximum power point tracking, testifying to its exceptional stability.
Solliance sets world record for roll-to-roll perovskites of 12.6%
Solliance announces the demonstration of an industrially-applicable roll-to-roll process for the production of solar cells, achieving a record 12,6% conversion efficiency on cell level.
Dyesol successful in 800,000 pound EPSRC grant application
The successful grant application is titled, Optimisation of charge carrier mobility in nanoporous metal oxide films.
The background to this proposed research is the recent joint discovery by Dyesol and Cristal that halide modified titania surfaces in Perovskite Solar Cell devices can provide a significant performance uplift.
First up-scaled Perovskite based PV module with 10% efficiency
Solliance demonstrates a record 10% aperture area power conversion efficiency for its up-scaled thin-film perovskite photovoltaic modules.
Roll to roll pilot production tool for flexible solar cells
Solliance has celebrated its fifth anniversary together with the final commissioning and launch of the roll-to-roll coating line for pilot production of flexible solar modules at the High tech Campus in Eindhoven.
Perovskite photovoltaics excitement
Perovoskite photovoltaics promises over 20% efficiency, low cost materials and even flexible, transparent and stretchable versions dearly needed for new applications. Record power to weight ratio is needed for the electric vehicle end game, the land vehicles, boats and aircraft described in the IDTechEx report, Energy Independent Vehicles 2016-2026.
Dyesol was established in 2004 to commercialise a third generation photovoltaic nanotechnology called Dye Solar Cells (DSC) or Dye Sensitised Solar Cells (DSSC). The company is now working on perovskite PV cells--one of the emerging PV technologies with rapid efficiency growth.
Is Perovskite Solar Technology Ready for Commercialization?
Pervoskite photovoltaics are a breath of fresh air in the photovoltaic market. They demonstrated a remarkable learning curve, going from 2.2% efficiency in 2006 to the latest record of 20.1% in 2014. They have already supressed OPVs and DSSCs and are now, at least in terms of efficiency, in the same range as leading thin film PVs like CdTe and CIGS.
Dyesol signs agreement with SPECIFIC
Dyesol signed an important agreement with SPECIFIC which marks the next step in its plan to commercialise its technology in the U.K.
Dyesol signs letter of intent with Tata Steel
Dyesol has signed a landmark agreement with Tata Steel UK. The agreement will play a critical role in Dyesol creating a commercial base in the United Kingdom to develop, manufacture and distribute its revolutionary solid-state DSC technology.
