Solar Press and Kroenert have signed an agreement to develop and sell turn-key manufacturing solutions for organic photovoltaic (OPV) modules.
This move, believed to be the first of its kind, will enable low cost production of light weight, flexible solar cells. This is expected to reduce the barriers to entry for OPV manufacture, extending the capability to all regions of the world.
Under the partnership agreement, Solar Press, a solar cell technology developer, will develop and optimise its production process and ink formulations to enable the manufacture of commercial OPV modules using Kroenert’s production coating and printing equipment.
Kroenert will optimise its hardware to maximise the capability of Solar Press’s OPV production process technology.
