R&D projects to innovate our future
Organic photovoltaics is not just some kind of another solar PV product. It's a new groundbreaking technology which changes the way power generation is integrated in our life. It enables nearly invisible energy harvesting for buildings. It is the enabler technology for smart, mobile IoT devices.
With Research and Development projects OPVIUS provides different ways to integrate organic photovoltaics - customized to your requirements.
Industrial roll-to-roll (R2R) printing of highly efficient non-fullerene acceptor (NFA)-based organic photovoltaics (OPV)
The aim of the NFA4R2ROPV project is the demonstration of printed, large-scale, NFA-based OPV modules fabricated out of benign solvents with efficiencies well beyond the current state of the art.
Organic Photovoltaics for Autonomous Sensor Networks and Internet of Things (IoT)
The objective of the project ORGANAUT is the further development and adaptation of organic photovoltaics (OPV) in order to supply sensors, data loggers and other small electronic devices used in the IoT domain with electrical energy even in low light conditions, in particular indoors. The aim is to integrate the OPV modules developed in the project directly into a sensor and to operate and test them under realistic operating conditions inside the building.
Innovative manufacturing processes and in-line monitoring techniques for the OLED and thin film and organic photovoltaic industries (CIGS and OPV)
OLEDSOLAR aims to develop innovative manufacturing processes and inline quality control systems for critical steps in the production of opto-electronic devices including OLEDs, OPVs and CIGs solar cells.

Development of a multifunctional façade element with a high degree of prefabrication
The aim of the Façade³ project is the development of a multifunctional façade element with a high degree of prefabrication. The core parts are an activated building envelope (organic photovoltaics), an innovative sun protection (selective and active) and sustainable insulation materials. Another important aspect is the integration of sensor technology and an integral control concept.
Development and demonstration of multi-functional, building-integrated, photovoltaically active façade elements
The objective of the Standard-BIPV project is the development and demonstration of multi-functional, building-integrated, photovoltaically active façade elements, among others based on OPV, characterized by a high level of aesthetics.
