Solar Foils for the Internet of Things


Cost-effective and ubiquitous power generation through lightweight, flexible and printed solar foils opens up a variety of new applications from small self-sufficient systems (Internet of Things) up to electro-mobility.


In order to secure the growing demand for solar foils in the future, roll-to-roll manufacturing processes as well as scalable solar modules have to be developed. This is the leading goal in this project.


In addition, fundamental questions have to be answered. This includes cell architecture, material development and optimized process parameters.
