Our Technology

As the fastest developing PV technology we believe that perovskite solar cells are the future of solar energy. That's why we are focused on commercialising this technology with roll-to-roll production so we can 'print' energy to power the world in all lighting conditions.

We have developed our cells specifically for low-light conditions for use with small electronics and IOT devices.

As global leaders in 3rd generation solar technology we have achieved world record efficiency in low light conditions. Our technology has proven to be 32% efficient in dull room conditions (160 lux).

With this performance in low-light conditions our technology can be used to power small electronics and IOT devices. This will provide constant power in all artificial and natural light conditions and could even replace the need for batteries at all.

By focusing on low-light specific cells for these applications we can make a difference by providing renewable and climate friendly power to small electronics and potentially displace millions of batteries.

We use perovskites because we believe that they are the future of solar PV and even global energy.

Perovskite PV cells are efficient in all lighting conditions. This includes artifical and natural as well as direct and indirect.

They are 100x thinner than traditional silicon solar PV cells and are flexible and transparent. This means they can be applied to almost any surface.

As they can be manufactured via low-temperature roll-to-roll manufacturing they can be produced quickly and in high volumes. This keeps the cost down with our cells being approximately three times cheaper than traditional silicon cells.

Compared with silicon and other solar PV technologies perovskite PV cells are better for the environment and our planet.

Perovskite solar cells are better for the planet than any other solar PV technology.

Perovskite solar cells have the lowest carbon footprint of any solar PV technology.
They also have the lowest energy payback period of any of these technologies.

Manufacturing of perovskites produces much less toxic waste material than silicon panels.

PSCs employ manufacturing processes that can be rapidly scaled up for widespread deployment.

The solutions-based processing of PSC enables the use of a roll-to-roll process for printing on flexiblesubstrates with potential deposition speeds of hundreds of meters per minute, as has been achievedin film coating industries. Even with more moderate line speeds this will facilitate low-cost high-volume production for rapid deployment of PV modules and offers the opportunity to produce PSC on a TW scale.

In contrast, the low throughput, batch-based production of silicon panels is insufficient to meet the future demand for solar PV modules.

This quick manufacturing process also has advantages in counteracting the comparatively short lifespan of current PSC with fast replacement technology and is adept at incorporating the numerous improvements in PSC technology which have already occurred, and continue to occur, at a rapid rate. In fact, the fast speed with which progress is being made in PSC technology can negate the necessity of PSC modules to have similar longevity to silicon cells.
