Saule Technologies is a Polish start-up that designed a low-temperature method for manufacturing flexible photovoltaic perovskite cells. The company is working on the development of a flexible and semi-transparent cell based on PET foil.

Saule's aim is to combine perovskite solar cells with other currently available products.

In December 2018, The Henn-na Hotel in Japan, a technologically advanced hotel staffed by robots, installed perovskite solar technology developed by Saule Technologies. The installed commercial prototype is made of 72 perovskite modules encapsulated in curved glass. Also in December 2018, Saule Technologies announced that Skanska has gone through with the installation of the first big format perovskite solar panel provided by Saule Technologies, integrated into its office in Warsaw, Poland. The size of the solar panel being tested on Skanska's Spark office building is 1.3 x 0.9 meters, containing 52 photovoltaic modules.

Saule Technologies has been working on the application of ink-jet printing for fabricating free-form perovskite solar modules since 2014. This technique allows the shapes and areas covered by each layer to be customized according to requirements. The stability and water resistance of the modules make them ideal for the construction industry. The company has conducted advanced research on perovskite applications in solar energy harvesting and optoelectronics with leading international universities in the UK, Israel, Germany, Italy and Spain. With a Japanese investor on board, along with support from the Polish National Centre for Research and Development and several research grants worth more than EUR 20 million, Saule Technologies is working on a large-scale, prototype production line.

In December 2014 in Boston, Saule Technologies unveiled the world's first printed perovskite.

The latest Saule Technologies news:

Saule Technologies' perovskite solar panel installed in innovative Japanese hotel

The Henn-na Hotel in Japan, a technologically advanced hotel staffed by robots, now officially features perovskite solar technology developed by Saule Technologies. The installed commercial prototype is made of 72 perovskite modules encapsulated in curved glass.

The aim of the hotel's owner is to make it electrically sustainable. Believing the perovskite solar cells may be a solution and therefore introducing it as a part of the Henn-na Hotel latest tech-solutions, it became the first hospitality facility in the world to have perovskite technology adopted.

Skanska and Saule Technologies commence revolutionary perovskite solar panels testing

Saule Technologies has been working with construction company Skanska on integrating Saules perovskite solar cells into buildings on a commercial scale. Now, it was announced that Skanska has gone through with the installation of the first big format perovskite solar panel provided by Saule Technologies, integrated into its office in Warsaw, Poland. The size of the solar panel being tested on Skanska's Spark office building is 1.3 x 0.9 meters, containing 52 photovoltaic modules.

Skanska stated that the use of perovskite technology for zero-energy buildings is the latest innovation in the developer's sustainable building strategy. Skanska is pioneering a method of covering office building exteriors with semi-transparent perovskite solar cells on a commercial scale.

Saule Technologies offers opportunities for PSC for BIPV applications in the Middle East

Saule Technologies, Poland-based developer of perovskite solar cells ink-jet printed on thin foil, has issued an open call for companies interested in licence agreements for BIPV applications in Middle Eastern countries. This follows Saule's recent announcement of the first commercial contract in BIPV with Norwegian construction company Skanska.

Saule Technologies offers flexible licence-based cooperation opportunities for companies active in the Middle East, available for entities interested in the development, distribution and integration of Saule’s solar cells in BIPV applications. The subject of the licence is an opaque PV product with very high energy conversion efficiency which can be easily integrated with building facades, and an efficient, translucent perovskite cell in any color (so-called "solar window"). Conditional licence (Exclusive Licence and Non-Exclusive Licence) for the use of any future product can be granted for a chosen country or group of countries not covered by the licence agreement with another entity.

Project ESPResSo will receive EU funding to bring PSCs out of the lab and into the market

Imec, the leading research hub focused on nanoelectronics, energy and digital technologies and partner in EnergyVille, has been named the coordinator of an ambitious 3-year European Union (EU) funded project called "ESPResSo" (Efficient Structures and Processes for Reliable Perovskite Solar Modules), that gathers known leaders in the field of perovskite PV technology to revolutionize Europe's photovoltaics (PV) industry.

The ESPResSo consortium has been granted over 5 Million by the European Union to overcome the limitations of today's state-of-the-art perovskite PV technology, bring perovskite solar cells to the next maturity level, and demonstrate their practical application.

Saule Technologies' perovskite-based solar panels headed for commercial implementation by building company Skanska

Saule Technologies, Poland-based developer of perovskite solar cells ink-jet printed on thin foil, has announced the signing of a cooperation agreement with Skanska's commercial development business unit in Central Eastern Europe.
