Oxford PV Signs JDA With a Global Manufacturer Of Solar Cells And Modules

Oxford PV Oxford Photovoltaics has announced the signing of a Joint Development Agreement (JDA) with a global manufacturer of solar cells and modules.

Under the agreement both the companies will work together to further develop Oxford PV’s perovskite-based solar technology – taking it from lab scale to manufacturing-ready status. Oxford PV touts that it holds the world’s largest patent portfolio for the use of perovskite in photovoltaic (PV) applications and its’ technology already demonstrates the efficiency and long-term stability needed to move towards commercialization.

This agreement will focus on that path to commercialization, scaling up the silicon / perovskite tandem PV technology and developing the necessary processes for manufacture.

Early November this year, the company announced the acquisition of a pilot line site in Brandenburg an der Havel, Germany. The bulk of this development work will be conducted at that site.

Frank Averdung, CEO of Oxford PV said: “We have made tremendous progress over the last year and this JDA provides independent ratification of our perovskite solar technology and its’ prospects. Whilst our research activities in Oxford focus on the future product roadmap, we are now ready to prepare our technology for commercialisation and will work on this with our partner in the German pilot line.”
