Dyesol enters China’s PV market with DSC prototype collaboration


G-Energy and the Department of Materials Science and Engineering at Tsinghua University have entered into a contract with Dyesol to supply a BIPV dye solar cell (DSC) laboratory prototyping solution. The prototype solution will enable the collaboration partners to develop glass-based DSC product based on Dyesol technology and materials.

Tsinghua has been developing DSC technology for a number of years working towards building a greater capacity for product development as a precursor to manufacturing. This collaboration provides Dyesol with a platform to enter into the rapidly growing Chinese market and confirms Asia’s key role in Dyesol’s international expansion strategy.

The prototype will be developed with Dyesol’s technical support and training as well as the installation of its proprietary equipment integrated with a range of locally supplied equipment. The prototype will be worth over AUS$700,000 in value.

Gordon Thompson, director of Dyesol and responsible for Asian operations, said, “This is the first step in developing a long term collaborative relationship and brings to a successful conclusion negotiations that have occurred over an extended period. China has the potential to be a powerhouse in DSC technology with significant R&D capacity and manufacturing expertise.”

Dyesol’s technology produces electricity with good efficiency in low light conditions and can be directly incorporated into buildings by replacing conventional glass panels or metal sheets rather than taking up roof or extra land area.
