Efficient, large-area arbitrary shape solar energy

Objective

The ArtESun project combines the multidisciplinary and complementary competences of top-level European research groups and industries in order to make significant steps towards high-efficiency >15%, stable and cost efficient OPV technology. For this purpose, the project objectives are set to make break-through advances in the state of the art in terms of (i) the development of innovative high efficient OPV materials which can be used to demonstrate the cost-effective non-vacuum production of large area arbitrary size and shape OPV modules (ii) understanding of the long term stable operation and the degradation mechanisms at the material and OPV device level (iii) the development of roll-to-roll (R2R) additive non-vacuum coating and printing techniques emphasizing efficient materials usage and cost efficient R2R processing and (iv) demonstration of high performance arbitrary size and shape OPV systems in environments relevant to its expected future applications.
