The main objective of the BUILD-DSSC is to set up a technology for the production of Large Area Dye Sensitized Solar Cells, solving the technological problems that presently do not allow to produce reliable DSSC. This will be possible by using a new class of electron transfer mediators, which are non-corrosive with metallic fingers used to realize conductive glass substrates, non-volatile, avoiding problems to the sealing of the cells and dramatically improving the duration and stability of the cell in operative conditions.
The present project is of primary importance in the field of DSSCs and can successfully finalise industrially, with such a novel solution, the completely new DSSC application onto opaque substrates (ceramic), for the production of BIPV tiles for roofs and facades. The BUILD-DSSC tile will be realised with a transparent conductive glass to produce the photo anode and a ceramic substrate as counter electrode, made conductive through graphite deposition.
