Dyesol takes a step toward integrating solar cells onto strip steel

Source:, 13 Jun 2009

Dyesol said that it is another step closer to the commercial production of Dye Solar Cells integrated onto strip steel in a coil coating line. The joint project between Dyesol and Corus Colors is supported by the UK’s Welsh Assembly Government. The partners are creating a pilot production line for the technology at the PV Accelerator in North Wales.

Dyesol said that it team demonstrated the materials and processes which would be utilized in the production line, and exceeded the requirements of the WAG milestone demonstrating commercially viable processes for manufacturing scale up. According to Dyesol, dye solar cell technology which is integrated into steel roofing will be the first solar cell technology that can be grid competitive in the normal light conditions. Other solar technologies require full sun conditions.
