Perovskite solar technology leader moves UK based headquarters and perovskite photovoltaic research and development to new 25,000 ft2 site in Oxford, UK, further supporting the accelerated commercialisation of its perovskite on silicon tandem solar cell technology.
Oxford, 6 March 2018 – Oxford PVTM – The Perovskite CompanyTM, the leader in the field of perovskite solar cells, today announced it has moved its UK based headquarters and research and development facilities to a new location in Oxford, UK.
The new site consolidates and strengthens Oxford PV’s UK based perovskite photovoltaic research and development activities, by providing a larger, controlled laboratory environment, with ample space for expansion of its equipment and expertise in the future.
Oxford PV’s experienced research and development team at the site, will continue to focus on advancing its perovskite photovoltaic technology. Additionally, Oxford PV’s UK team will continue to support the transfer of its advanced lab based perovskite on silicon tandem solar cell technology to industrial scale processes and equipment, an activity that takes place at the company’s pilot line, in Brandenburg an der Havel, Germany, in close collaboration with its joint development partner – a major manufacturer of silicon solar cells and modules.
Oxford PV’s Chief Executive Officer, Frank P. Averdung commented, “Oxford PV is well ahead in commercialising its perovskite photovoltaic solution, which has the potential to enable performance gains that will transform the economics of silicon photovoltaic technology globally. Our teams in the UK and Germany have collaboratively made tremendous progress to transfer our technology from our lab to our industrial scale pilot line, and our new, improved R&D facility in Oxford will help to further accelerate this process.”
