Printed plastic solar technology is a rapidly developing, multidisciplinary field with huge potential. Eight19’s focus is to develop the technology and manufacturing processes that will bring solar power to commercial reality in mass market applications.
To do this, Eight19 is collaborating closely with leading organisations around the world in three broad areas:
Providers of high performance materials including photoactive layers, substrates, electrodes and encapsulation
Organisations, particularly universities and research institutes with specific expertise in plastic solar cell processes and who wish to collaborate in areas of device design, evaluation and characterisation
OEM partners who will incorporate plastic solar cells into end products and wish to evaluate the performance of plastic solar technology in real applications world-wide
