Our prototype production line will be operational during the 4th quarter of 2019. Our first products will be available for our partners from next year.
We focus on B2B (business to business) model, our clients are big industrial players interested in integrating their products with perovskites. Currently, we are not working with individual customers. However, it is possible that our products will be available for individual customers through our client’s distribution network.
We primarily target IoT, construction, electronics, automotive and space industries.
Please visit our Product page, where you will find a form for interested parties.
We expect the initial efficiency to be around 10%. The total price will depend on the requirements of the application. We are targeting a 50 EUR / m2 price for the solar cells by 2022.
We expect an initial lifetime to be several years, which will be improved in the due course.
The inkjet printing technique allows the design of free form perovskite solar modules. The shapes and areas covered by each layer can be all customized according to the requirements.
Perovskite cells are resistant to damage caused by bending and folding. The flexibility of the final product depends only on the materials constituting the substrate and the encapsulant. The technology is compatible with virtually any substrate. Currently, developed cells are printed on a flexible, transparent foil.
Yes. Different levels semi-transparency is obtainable. Even though the efficiency decreases with increased transparency, it is still economically viable due to the intrinsically low cost of our technology.
The thickness of a solar cell is around 1 micron. The total thickness of the module depends on the substrate and encapsulation technology, which is determined by the requirements of the particular application.
The weight of the solar cell is negligible compared to the substrate and encapsulants, and the total mass thus depends on the materials of these components. Current weight of Saule modules is approx. 500 g/m2.
The technology utilized by Saule enables the finished product to be engineered to a wide range of available colors. This is a feature especially desirable in building integrated applications, allowing architects to design with a great degree of freedom.
