“We know how much we can gain from going public,”said Olga Malinkiewicz, Co-Founder & CTO, Saule S.A. “This is the perfect moment in Saule’s growth. We’ve already started commercialising our perovskite cells, and we’re ready to scale up our business. We want to build factories with much higher production capabilities all over the world. Being part of the capital market will certainly give us greater transparency and credibility in the eyes of potential investors. This will also make it easier for us to get the funds we need to carry on with our ambitious plans.”
There’s a rapidly rising demand for perovskite-based photovoltaic devices. Saule’s cells can be used as excellent energy sources for the IoT, BIPV, BAPV, e-mobility, and other sectors. One example of successful commercialisation is by Skanska, which is now being introduced on the commercial scale. It involves using perovskite-based solar cells (transparent or non-transparent) supplied by Saule to cover the exterior walls of office buildings in Poland, as well as on select European and North American (US and Canadian) markets.
