“We are extremely pleased with Panasonic’s decision to join our program,” said Huib van den Heuvel, director at Solliance. “With this step, Panasonic strengthens the industrial participation in this exciting research field.”
Solliance is active in the field of thin film photovoltaic solar energy and provides state-of-the-art laboratories and pilot production lines that are jointly used for research programs. The agreement gives Panasonic access to the world’s best processing equipment and expertise suited to the development of its revolutionary Perovskite Solar Cell (PSC) technology on flexible substrates.
Panasonic will conduct the feasibility studies on the possibility of large scale roll-to-roll production of printed PSCs under this program.
“We very much appreciate the cooperation with Solliance. Its roll-to-roll pilot production infrastructure and the know-how related to PSCs is world class,” said Toshihiro Higuchi, Panasonic resident working within the joint research team at Solliance.
