All systems are go for Oxford University offshoot Oxford PV, as it builds upon recent investment and facility acquisitions with an agreement with a solar manufacturer to start getting its perovskite technology ready for manufacturing. The technology in question is some of the most exciting in the PV industry, with potential to dramatically increase the efficiency of solar modules.
The JDA that Oxford PV has signed is with a “global manufacturer of solar cells and modules,” but Oxford PV has yet to name the partner. The move is an attempt to bring the company’s perovskite technology closer to commercialisation and to increasing its scale. Taking it from the laboratory to the factory.
“Whilst our research activities in Oxford focus on the future product roadmap, we are now ready to prepare our technology for commercialisation and will work on this with our partner in the German pilot line,” commented Oxford PV CEO Frank Averdung.
