TLDR:

  • Switzerland-based solar startup Perovskia has developed a printed perovskite solar cell technology that can be applied to glass, enabling solar power integration in indoor devices.
  • Perovskite solar cells have a linear production curve that doesn’t degrade as much as silicon solar cells when used indoors.

Perovskia, a Switzerland-based startup, has created a perovskite-based solar cell technology that can be printed directly onto glass, allowing solar power integration in indoor devices. Perovskite solar cells have a linear production curve and do not degrade as much as traditional silicon solar cells when used indoors. The company showcased its unique process at CES 2024, highlighting its ability to build solar cells in any two-dimensional shape, as well as their thinness that allows solar inclusion in previously unthinkable places. The printed perovskite cells can be wired into devices to provide power. Additionally, Perovskia is working towards directly printing perovskite solar cells onto printed circuit boards, which would create a wide range of new applications. Compared to silicon-based cells, Perovskia’s solar cells are already competitive although they come at a higher premium due to the lower production volumes associated with custom solutions and startups. Despite being a startup, Perovskia has several customers worldwide and is working on products for customers in the United States and Israel. The perovskite cells showcased at CES included both standard square cells and novel shapes, such as rounded cells and narrow rectangular cells, demonstrating the technology’s versatility and adaptability for printing in various shapes.
