Perovskite solar cell developer Oxford Photovoltaics said it had raised a top-up B round of £4.4 million from a variety existing investors as well as new sources of funding.
Thin film perovskite solar cell developer Dyesol has secured funding of AUD$449,000 (US$353,000) from the Australian Renewable Energy Agency (ARENA).
Solar cells made of a perovskite absorber are a hot candidate for the scientific community to boost the efficiency of traditional crystalline silicon cells further through a tandem structure.
Thin-film OPV firm, Dyesol has undertaken light soaking testing of its small substrate-sized lab-based perovskite solar cells.
UK-based thin-film start-up, Oxford Photovoltaics, has secured at least a further £8 million (US$12.1 million) in venture capital funding to further plans to commercialise its blend of perovskite materials under a licensing model.
OPV thin-film firm Heliatek is supplying its ‘HeliaFilm’ substrate to a building integrated organic photovoltaic (BIOPV) project in Singapore that will evaluate its performance and durability in hot and humid climates.
Taiwan-based wafer producer, Green Energy Technology (GET), reported increased sales in January 2015, up 16.7% on the previous month.
Germany-based OPV substrate manufacturer, Heliatek, has signed a business development agreement with Singapore-based vTrium Energy to grow its market in the region.
Thin-film OPV firm, Dyesol is collaborating with Portuguese electrical engineering firm, EFACEC on a novel laser assisted, glass frit sealing technology for its solid-state DSC solar cells to provide 20-year plus sealing for its planned perovskite-based commercial PV products.
Organisers of the 31st European Photovoltaic Solar Energy Conference and Exhibition (EU PVSEC) have set deadlines for paper abstract submissions for the event being held in mid-September at the CCH - Congress Center Hamburg, in Hamburg, Germany.
Germany-based OPV thin-film producer Heliatek has started integrating flexible OPV substrates on a PVC-based membrane used for air dome structures, opening up a new area of Building Integrated Organic Photovoltaics (BIOPV).
Thin-film OPV firm, Dyesol has renewed its involvement with Swansea University in Wales and the Sustainable Product Engineering Centre for Innovative Functional Industrial Coatings (SPECIFIC) to develop and commercialise perovskite-based OPV thin-film products.
Thin-film OPV firm, Dyesol said it was undertaking the planning phases of commercialising its solid-state DSC technology using perovskite-based thin-films.
Thin-film firm, Dyesol has reported increased annual losses primarily on the back of reduced revenue and higher developments costs associated with its major shift to develop solid state perovskite-based solar cells.
Dresden-based OPV thin-film start-up, Heliatek GmbH has raised €18 million in a ‘Series C’ investment round that included German entrepreneur, Stefan Quandt.
