Greatcell Solar and Jinko Solar sign memorandum of understanding

The longterm aim is for Jinko Solar to enter into a formal agreement with Greatcell to commercialise the technology and establish large scale manufacturing

19 Jul 2017 | Editor

Greatcell Solar Limited (formerly Dyesol Limited) has announced that it has signed a non-exclusive Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with JinkoSolar. The relationship has formed over several months of discussion and with the close support of Nanyang Technology University (NTU), the company's academic research collaboration partner in Singapore.

Greatcell plans to make available developmental Perovskite Solar Cell (PSC) devices and associated information on a strictly confidential basis to enable Jinko to further evaluate the technology with the longterm aim of entering into a formal agreement with Greatcell to commercialise the technology and establish large scale manufacturing.

"We are delighted to jointly explore commercialisation opportunities with Jinko for our revolutionary technology in China. Jinko is very progressive, recognises the potential of our emerging technology and is a world leader in the solar sector."

"Moreover, Jinko has a deep understanding of risk-managed technology development and the benefits of economies of scale in manufacture. The possibilities for collaboration are enormous."
Richard Caldwell, Managing Director, Greatcell Solar

About PEROVSKITE SOLAR CELL TECHNOLOGY

Perovskite Solar Cell (PSC) technology is a photovoltaic (PV) technology based on applying low cost materials in a series of ultrathin layers encapsulated by protective sealants.

Greatcell Solar’s technology has lower embodied energy in manufacture, produces stable electrical current, and has a strong competitive advantage in low light conditions relative to incumbent PV technologies.

This technology can be directly integrated into the building envelope to achieve highly competitive building integrated photovoltaics (BIPV). The key material layers include a hybrid organic-inorganic halide-based perovskite light absorber and nano-porous metal oxide of titanium oxide.

Light striking the absorber promotes an electron into the excited state, followed by a rapid electron transfer and collection by the titania layer. Meanwhile, the remaining positive charge is transferred to the opposite electrode, thereby generating an electrical current.
