Oxford PV signs JDA with solar cell and module manufacturing industrial partner

UK-based Oxford Photovoltaics Ltd (which was founded in 2010 by professor Henry Snaith as a spin-off from the University of Oxford) has announced a joint development agreement (JDA) with a global manufacturer of solar cells and modules.

The two firms will work together to further develop Oxford PV's perovskite-based solar technology, taking it from lab scale to manufacturing-ready status. Oxford PV claims that it holds the world's largest patent portfolio for the use of perovskite material in photovoltaic (PV) applications, and that its technology already demonstrates the efficiency and long-term stability needed to move towards commercialization.

The JDA will focus on that path to commercialization, scaling up the silicon/perovskite tandem PV technology, and developing the necessary processes for manufacturing.

On 10 November Oxford PV announced the acquisition of a pilot line site in Brandenburg an der Havel, Germany. The bulk of the JDA-related development work will be conducted at that site.

"We have made tremendous progress over the last year and this JDA provides independent ratification of our perovskite solar technology and its prospects," says CEO Frank Averdung. "Whilst our research activities in Oxford focus on the future product roadmap, we are now ready to prepare our technology for commercialization and will work on this with our partner in the German pilot line."
