A team of scientists (Anand Verma (co-founder, CEO), Dr. David Martineau (CTO), Dr. Toby Meyer (co-founder, CEO Solaronix), and Andreas Meyer (CTO Lumartix)) have developed a digital printing technology to fabricate efficient and stable perovskite solar cells with custom design capability.
The fabrication techniques they developed are said to be highly efficient and flexible, which could reduce the production cost considerably, even for customized items.
With this breakthrough, the team hoped to cater to the diverse needs of Internet of Things, electronic goods, sensors, and ultimately designer solar tiles industries. They are already working with a couple of industrial clients where customized solar cells have been successfully tested.
These collaborations are planned to generate first revenues for the startup, and will establish the company among the first to commercialize perovskite solar cell technology in real-world electronic devices (lab to product).
In January 2021, Perovskia won funds from Venture Kick, which will be used to acquire research projects with prototyping for clients, promotions and IP. This will also help in getting new funds from agencies like the EU, and further develop the technology for the current customers.
