Dyesol dye solar cell axceeds PV durability test by 400%
 
Australian clean-tech company and Dye Solar Cell industry leader, Dyesol Limited announced its solar-enabling technology has exceeded a key international photovoltaic industry standard test for long-term durability by 400 per cent.

  • This result is related to the liquid-based dye solar cell (DSC)

Speaking at the European Materials Research Society Conference in Strasbourg, France, Dyesol Chief Scientist, Dr Hans Desilvestro, explained that the “gold-standard” of novel photovoltaic device development is certification by an international standard such as IEC 61646, where one of the harsher tests requires product stability at a constant temperature of 85°C for over 1000 hours.

Dr Desilvestro announced: “Dyesol has tested its industrially scalable Dye Solar Cell materials and the material set maintained over 90% of initial performance after an extremely stressful test of 5000 hours at a constant temperature of 85°C.” 

Our Dye Solar Cell technology has exceeded the time required under one of the most stringent IEC durability tests by 400 per cent!

The present announcement relates to the liquid-based DSC system and the Company is also moving forward with similar evaluations for the solid state DSC system.  Dyesol and its R&D collaboration partners will continue to develop liquid-based and solid-state technologies in parallel to suit applications most relevant to their specific attributes.

Dye Solar Cell technology is a third generation photovoltaic and nanotechnology which is printed onto glass, metal or plastic substrates in a series of very thin layers – many times thinner than a human hair.  The technology can be transparent or opaque, and a number of colour options are possible.  On glass, Dye Solar Cell technology can appear like a modern stained glass window – the value-add being it produces clean energy right at the point of consumption.

Key markets for Dye Solar Cell technology include: Building Integrated Photovoltaics (BIPV), consumer electronics, and remote sensors.
