SolarPrint Ltd

Profile
SolarPrint, founded in 2008 based in Dublin, Ireland. The company develops dye sensitised solar cells (DSSC), a third-generation printable solar cell technology.
 
SolarPrint's technology supports higher functionality to enable the ability to scale more power-hungry wireless solutions than possible with other solutions. When it is integrated into wireless sensors for energy harvesting purposes in buildings, DSSC provides significant cost savings by eliminating wired networks and the need to replace or lengthen the life of batteries.

SolarPrint Ltd

SolarPrint has developed its DSSC technology in an incremental fashion going from the lab into pilot production, from small cells to modules, developing scalable processes and reproducible production steps.The key technical challenges that SolarPrint is addressing for the commercialisation of DSSC are: (a) Power output (especially in low light conditions), (b) Product lifetime, (c) Manufacturability & scalability. In addressing these challenges, a multidisciplinary approach is followed across cell chemistry, electrical and process engineering. The focus remains on maximising power output and improving lifetime of the indoor DSSC product in a scalable way.

Solar power for electric vehicles

Most of the companies developing photovoltaics have been obsessed with reaching grid parity meaning competitiveness with conventional grid electricity generation which is often highly subsidised. More recently, it has been realised that the market for disposable photovoltaics on consumer goods is at least as large and even the potential on electric vehicles by land, water and air, could be an enticing billion square meters a year, comparable to that for buildings.
