Heliatek GmbH

HQ Country
Heliatek is engaged in the development and production of organic photovoltaic solar cells. The company was founded in 2006 and is leveraging organic materials to improve the cost-efficiency characteristics of solar cells for large area applications.
By utilizing vacuum technology, Heliatek is developing a new proprietary material that displays unprecedented power efficiency, transport and contact properties as well as extended life-time characteristics.
In 2010 the company is preparing its production line.
Heliatek's proprietary technology relies on the vacuum deposition of so-called small molecules, a technology proven successful in OLEDs. In contrast, so-called plastic solar cells pursued by other companies are prepared by solution processing (e.g., printing) of polymers.

Heliatek Signs Strategic Partnership with Looop for Japan

Heliatek has signed a strategic partnership agreement with Looop In. to market and install the innovative solar films in Japan. Both companies have already tested the solar films in several pilot projects, including a comparison test site on the campus of the Ritsumeikan University in 2020. Heliatek and Looop are convinced that the innovative solar films are perfectly suited to unlock a large potential of unused surfaces for solar power generation in Japan's metropolises.

Flexible OLED for Homogeneous Light in the Operating Room

The glare-free, homogeneous light of large-area organic light-emitting diodes is perceived as very pleasant and offers many advantages for product design. In the recently completed LAOLA project, OLEDs were therefore developed as planar lighting for a wide range of applications on flexible substrates.

Pilot Project for Innovative PV Solutions From Heliatek

Avoiding CO2 emissions wherever possible - GREEN also pursues this goal for managed portfolio properties of GARBE. The system can extend the lifespan and utilisation cycles of the properties and enhance the attractiveness of the locations long-term. Moreover, it can help avoid demolition, which is a waste of energy. If the installation of a conventional roof-mounted photovoltaic system is not possible on roofs due to insufficient static or structural stability, older buildings may be retrofitted in the future by mounting organic photovoltaic films laterally on their façades.
