Dyesol recently opened its newest facility in Shotton, North Wales only a few weeks after its Australian materials manufacturing and equipment design and assembly facility was unveiled. The new photovoltaic accelerator facility is a continuation of the partnership between Dyesol and Corus to step up the commercialisation of Dye Solar Cell (DSC) technology onto steel sheeting building products.
Dyesol states that its DSC technology can offer lower facility cost, lower energy to manufacture, proportionally higher output of electricity in normal and low light conditions. The technology can be directly incorporated into buildings as passive electricity generators-multifunction building panels. DSC expects the collaboration with Corus to bring its DSC technology to the market as a fully integrated steel building product created on the Corus coil-coating lines.
Commenting during the opening, Dyesol’s Global Managing Director, Dr. Gavin Tulloch said, “Dyesol is proud to be associated with Corus, a partner that has demonstrated its commitment to the environment and the future of cost effective energy security. We are also proud to be associated with the Welsh government, whose commitment to the team has accelerated the project. Dyesol’s business is to be part of technical collaborations and business partnerships in those countries where organisations, research institutes and governments recognise and foster an environment that promotes the rapid commercialisation of DSC technology.”
