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.

The construction company will be the first to cover office buildings with semi-transparent perovskite solar cells on a commercial scale. Saule Technologies will be the technology provider. The initial implementation tests are planned for 2018 in Poland.

Saule Technologies to demonstrate A4-paper-sized, flexible, printed perovskite solar cells

Saule Technologies will be presenting a flexible, printed, perovskite photovoltaic module the size of an A4 sheet of paper, for the first time, at the IDTechEx Show on November 15-16th in Santa Clara, CA. The operating Saule module is printed on an ultrathin plastic foil able to charge personal electronic devices, demonstrating one of the many possible applications of these perovskite solar cells. The prototype industry-scale production line is estimated to begin in 2018.

"Scaling up the size of perovskite solar cells is one of the biggest challenges for companies and researchers working with this technology. Printing a stable and operating A4 size module has been among our most important milestones for 2017 and we are more than happy to be able to present it for the first time in the USA," says the CTO and co-founder at Saule Technologies.

Saule Technologies presents breakthrough perovskite solar prototype at PSCO 2017

Saule Technologies has announced that it will be presenting a prototype and will answer questions regarding its flexible perovskite photovoltaic modules at the 3rd International Conference on Perovskite Solar Cells and Optoelectronics (PSCO-2017) in Oxford, UK.

The company will reportedly be showing an operating module printed on ultra-thin PET foil. Samples available for public viewing will present the stability of the module and underwater operation for the first time. The prototype large-scale production line capable of fabricating solar modules with a nominal power output of 100W/m2 is expected to be operational in fall of 2018.
