Dyesol Becomes Industrial Partner of Solliance


Reading time ( words)

Solliance - the solar energy R&D consortium of Holst Centre, ECN, imec, TNO, TU/e, Forschungszentrum Jülich, University Hasselt and Delft University of Technology - and Dyesol Limited, world leader in the industrialisation of Perovskite Solar Cell (PSC) technology, are pleased to announce they have signed an agreement formalising Dyesol's entry as an Industrial Partner to Solliance.

Solliance is active in the field of thin film photovoltaic solar energy and provides state of the art laboratories and pilot production lines which are jointly used for dedicated research programmes. The three year agreement gives Dyesol access to the world's best processing equipment and expertise suited to the commercialisation of its revolutionary Perovskite Solar Cell (PSC) technology on steel.

Solliance's capability in the roll-to-roll processing of flexible PV enabled substrates, together with Dyesol's expertise in PSC processing, device design and materials will enable both parties to accelerate the readiness of a commercially viable PSC based steel product for supply to the very substantial global cladding and roofing markets where attractive margins will be achievable. This partnership will create the industry's most technically capable and commercially focused effort to roll out this next generation technology.

The agreement gives Dyesol access to the foreground and background IP of its Solliance R&D partners related to the R&D programme, while protecting Dyesol's background IP.

"We are excited that Dyesol has joined our Solliance Perovskite research programme. This commitment of Dyesol is a confirmation of the excellence, know-how and infrastructure that Solliance combines via its research partners" says Huib van den Heuvel, Director Solliance.

"Utilisation of Solliance's laboratories and pilot production lines will enable Dyesol to reduce its steel related capital expenditure and increase internal focus on its core PSC technology development", says Richard Caldwell, Dyesol's Managing Director. "The Solliance activities will be supervised from Dyesol UK and will complement Dyesol's participation in its other collaborations, including SPECIFIC where it will continue to benefit from close collaboration".

My View from CES 2021: Day 1

01/12/2021 | Dan Feinberg, Technology Editor, I-Connect007
What a difference a year makes. One year ago, those of us who cover and attend CES were going from one press conference to the next; this year, we are at home going from link to link. Confusing and challenging, yes, but there are some advantages: no masks, only five steps to get to a restroom, being able to have three of four events or more displaying on your screens at the same time and being able to download press kits as needed. So far, many new devices are being introduced, but of course, they are all online, so you wonder if some of them really exist or are truly operational as yet.

CES 2021: Just How Different Will It Be?

01/11/2021 | Dan Feinberg, I-Connect007
CES 2021 starts today and this year there is no need for an overpriced hotel room in Vegas, no long lines to get a taxi or board a bus, and no crowded exhibit halls (one good thing this year). On the other hand, you must decide ahead of time what you want to see and make a reservation or appointment if you wish to have time and access assured.

CES 2020: The Intelligence of Things

01/06/2020 | Nolan Johnson, I-Connect007
Show week for CES 2020 starts well ahead of the actual exhibition dates because it is huge. The organizers of CES state that there are more than 4,400 exhibiting companies and nearly three million net square feet of exhibit space. On the floor, you can find 307 of the 2018 Fortune Global 500 companies. Over the week, I-Connect007 Editors Dan Feinberg and Nolan Johnson will bring you some of the most interesting news, products, and announcements from 5G to IoT, semiconductor developments, autonomous vehicle technology, interconnect, fabrication materials, and much more.
