Oxford PV to establish a perovskite fab in Germany

Oxford PV, a spin-out from the University of Oxford that aims to commercialize a new technology for thin-film solar cells, has recently acquired the former thin-film production site of Bosch Solar in Germany, to establish a fab with pilot-scale capacity for perovskite wafers.

The plan is to ramp up Oxford PV's perovskite technology to industry-standard wafer size. Oxford's CEO stated that the facility was identified because of its existing first-class facilities and the ready availability of a local, experienced, highly skilled workforce. The Brandenburg team will work closely alongside the existing operation in Oxford.
