We have developed an alkaline active layer solar cell, called APV. Key advantages of the APV are:
- It is incredibly thin and 100% non-toxic, just 200nm thick and can be added to anything, for example:
- Mobile phones: powering them on the go
- Existing silicon solar panels: for further efficiency improvements
- It will be flexible, transparent and versatile
- It will have the lowest cost of production at just 13c/W as it employs low-cost industrial scale production equipment (sputtering).
