Following the contacts held during the workshop “Making renewables a reality: Solar” at BIN@SHEFFIELD 2011, a new collaboration started between two Portuguese institutions and an Australian company to explore the industrial application of Dye Sensitized Solar Cells. These institutions are now involved in common Research and Innovation projects and the future looks promising regarding the scaling up of this technology.
In addition, and as a follow up result, an extensive 5 million euro deal was concluded between Dyesol (company’s new name: Greatcell Solar) and EFACEC aimed at taking technology to the market. See more information about the deal HERE.
