Australian Prime Minister tours Dyesol


Dyesol is currently working with Tata Steel in the U.K. and Pilkington Glass in North America to develop the integration of its dye solar cells into building materials.

Dyesol’s Director and joint founder, Sylvia Tulloch, met the Prime Minister and explained why its "next generation" photovoltaic technology has the potential to change the industry.

"By replacing conventional building facades or steel roofing sheets, with building materials that have Dyesol's dye solar cell technology imbedded into their very fabric, without the need to fit conventional solar panels at additional cost, we see exciting opportunities for cost-savings and large-scale integration," Mrs Tulloch said.

Prime Minister Gillard met around 50 scientists, engineers and support staff from the company. Afterwards she held a press conference announcing her government’s Manufacturing Taskforce, which will produce a vision for manufacturing in Australia.

The November edition of pv magazine includes a feature article on the Australian photovoltaic industry and market, including insight into the latest developments from Dyesol.
