DSSC’s has gained an interest as a solution to BIPV application due to its unique features of a superior performance under low light condition, transparency, conformability and easy integration into the buildings. A reliable and high-quality large size DSSC panel is a prerequisite to advance the DSSC technology into the real BIPV market.
Large-size DSSC panels will also greatly reduce the efficiency loss originating from the interconnection between many small solar cell panels.
The project aims to develop DSSC panels with a size of 914 mm x 580 mm with 7% efficiency and long-term stability. The project will also develop essential chemicals including high-efficiency dyes, stability-secured gel-type electrolytes, various n-type oxide pastes together with anti-reflective nanostructures, which will significantly boost the cost reduction and long-term reliability of DSSC panels.
The project consortium consists of five SMEs, one research institute and one university with complementary expertise and long experience in related technologies;
Orion Co. Ltd., South Korea
Obducat Technologies AB, Sweden
Korea Institute of Energy Research, South Korea
Chung-Ang University, South Korea
Gaia Solar, Denmark
GPYO Engineering & Consultancy, Spain
AP Nanoteknoloji Ltd., Turkey
Obducat Technologies AB will focus on fabrication of large-area anti-reflection nanostructure with a self-cleaning function by using NIL technology.
The other members of the consortium will perform the following missions;
development of the electrolyte in DSSCs and organic dyes to improve the efficiency of DSSCs
development of large-size DSSC panel
installation and field test of large-area DSSC panel
The project will start in May 2015 and is scheduled to run over 3 years with a total budget of 2.6 MEUR.
