Partnership announced for low cost organic solar cell manufacture

Solar cell technology developer Solar Press and coating and printing experts KROENERT have announced the signing of a long term partnership agreement to develop and sell turn-key manufacturing solutions for Organic Photovoltaic (OPV) modules.

Solar cell technology developer Solar Press and coating and printing experts KROENERT have announced the signing of a long term partnership agreement to develop and sell turn-key manufacturing solutions for Organic Photovoltaic (OPV) modules. This move, believed to be the first of its kind, will enable low cost production of light weight, flexible solar cells. This reduces the barriers to entry for OPV manufacture, extending the capability to all regions of the world.


Under the partnership agreement, Solar Press, a world leader in the development of OPV process technology, will develop and optimise its production process and ink formulations to enable the manufacture of commercial OPV modules using KROENERT's production coating and printing equipment. KROENERT will optimise its hardware to maximise the capability of Solar Press's OPV production process technology.

Chris Harris, CEO of Solar Press said: "KROENERT offers world class coating and printing production equipment that is ideally suited to volume OPV production. Our partnership agreement represents an important step in building the necessary eco-system of partners to bring about the delivery of turn-key production systems for manufacturing OPV modules using Solar Press' proprietary production process and ink formulations."

Frank Schaefer, Sales Director New Products for KROENERT said: "Solar Press have impressed us with their vision and the progress they have made towards delivering a commercially viable OPV production process and ink formulations. In partnership with Solar Press we can offer a turn-key OPV production solution that minimises the investment required by customers wishing to manufacture OPV modules and products."

TRA SNOW AND SUN - SOLAR TILE MOUNT

TRA SNOW AND SUN - SOLAR TILE MOUNT

You haven't installed a tile mount that is easier to install than the Solar Tile Mount manufactured by TRA Snow and Sun. Solar Tile Mount is used on all tile roof profiles: flat, mid, and high. It is made in the USA of aluminum alloy for strength and excellent corrosion resistance. Solar Tile Mount is built to allow more ease in installation with more rise from the tile surface to the rail for better air flow below panels. The adjustable base is longer than most allowing attachment 6" to the left or right to have the bracket in the base of the pan of the tile and still fasten to the rafter. Solar Tile Mount is adjustable for counter batten systems from ¾" to 3". The horizontal rail is directly above base fasteners giving greater uplift resistance than any other system. For superior waterproofing apply TRA Snow and Sun's butyl backed VersaFlash aluminum flashing. No tile flashing is needed on top of the tile for greater labor and material cost savings.
