SUNEW and CSEM Brasil to Develop Fully Transparent Solar Film

Polymer Solar Cells Market

Development of electronics and electrical is the key factor bolstering growth of global polymer solar cells market. Apropos a study report on global polymer solar cells market developed by Future Market Insights, the market is likely to witness expansion at exponential double-digit CAGR during 2017-2017. The market in APEJ region is slated to retain its dominance during the assessment period. China being the largest contributor to the growth of the region, exhibits highest growth rate during the assessment period. North America, Western Europe and Japan are also slated to exhibit significant expansion in foreseeable future. 

Using Cambrios’ ClearOhm, SUNEW and CSEM Brasil Develop Fully transparent Solar Film

Cambrios and SUNEW have made an announcement that they have jointly designed OPV Power Film that utilized Cambrios’ Clear Ohm material to manufacture transparent solar cell that will be instaloled into widows that make use of large access areas available to generate power in houses. CSEM Brasil is likely to exhibit a prototype of large area OPV Power Film utilizing silver nanowires fixed to glass window during LOPEC.

SUNEW is likely to manufacture and sale this type films in the market. The facility was constructed in 2015 to generate first largest global facility to manufacture OPV as well as improve the solar energy technology in Brasil and across the globe. The vision of zero energy buildings needs each building creates all the power it consumes. To generate such large amount of energy, rooftops will not only be sufficient. It requires facades, windows of buildings to be installed with such solar plates. Traditionally silicon panels were utilized, which were heavy and cannot be installed in the walls. However, organic photovoltaic is better for the installation on the walls or in vertical areas.

Owing to intrinsic characteristics such as lightweight, highly flexible, and availability in various colors to provide better aesthetics, organic photovoltaic is the best option for constructing buildings. OPV are the best example of organic electronics ability to utilized low-cost large-area roll-to-roll printing which is very scalable to increased volume production with low cost and low carbon footprint. Commercial buildings are increasingly utilizing glass facades as well as more than 10 billion m2 of flat glass was manufactured in 2017 with 70% going into facades. OPV film is developed to integrate easily into the glass facades.

OPV Power Films are bigger step in achieving the company’s goal to bring solar generation everywhere close to where it is consumed in urban areas. CEO of CSEM Brasil, Tiago Alves stated that Cambrios’ invisible electrodes are key for the generation of transparent OPV films. Cambrios has delightedly collaborated with CSEM Brasil and SUNEW to design and develop novel breakthrough products to address huge BIPV market.
