Partnering opportunity

Innovative solar photovoltaic cells which can be integrated in urban furniture

Summary

A Polish company active in photovoltaics solutions sector has developed a new kind of PV cells which can be integrated in urban furniture. The cells are flexible and therefore adaptable to multiple surfaces. The partners for technical cooperation or joint venture are sought and also partners for further product development through research cooperation.

Partner sought

The company is looking for industrial partners, construction companies, designing and engineering companies that could be interested to support them to integrate their solutions in real projects or develop the solutions to the next level to make them more adaptable to the real state sector.

Description

Polish well known producer of photovoltaic cells with huge experience in the sector has developed flexible PV cells which can be integrated in urban furniture such as bus marquees, benches, street lights. To date architectonic solutions available on the market were basically based in passive solar energy concepts leading to energy saving depending on different insulation materials for the facades and roofs. In the last decade the concept of energy zero buildings is becoming more and more popular and mandatory in many countries. Passive concepts by themselves are not in the position to resolve this problem as the power consumption of the building cannot be covered without generation of energy and therefore active concepts. Nevertheless, the Polish company's solution for BIPV brings to the market an innovative concept, based on active solar energy, which can be integrated in facades, canopies or roofs and generates energy while at the same time having similar properties as construction materials existing on the market and being used in construction's passive concepts. At structural level it behaves like a conventional glass used in buildings, with the added value that it generates clean and free energy. That solution implemented in buildings allows to get energy zero concepts. They can produce flexible cells adaptable to multiple surfaces. They work with the crystalline silicon and thin film (amorphous silicon) technology. Their modules can be manufactured with backsheet (traditional) or glass/glass solution (without back sheet and frame). Thanks to the double layer of tempered glass and the variety of inter-layers the company's solutions provide UV radiation protection: avoiding the loss of color of the furniture exposed to the sun and security - both for the risk of possible injuries caused by cuts and fallen into the void, as by fire. The company offers cells in different types of colors both thin film and crystalline. The company can adapt to all types of projects, being totally flexible in the dimensions and configuration of the product. In addition to the standard products they can provide 100% customized solutions. The company searches partners from industry, construction sector, designing or engineering companies interested in supporting them in integration of their solutions in real projects. Developing the solutions to the next level to make them more adaptable to the real state sector is also desirable. They are looking for partners to sign technical cooperation or joint venture agreements and also partners for further product development through research cooperation are sought.

Advantages and innovations

Thanks to the double layer of tempered glass and the variety of inter-layers, the solutions provide: - UV radiation protection: Avoiding the loss of color of the furniture exposed to the sun. - Brightness control: Controlling the amount of entering light - Security: Both for the risk of possible injuries caused by cuts and fallen into the void, as by fire. - Color: different types of colors both thin film and crystalline.

How it works

  • Tell us about yourself
  • We’ll discuss with you
  • We put the right partners in touch

EEN help you find the right partner, rather than you going it alone.

Our role is to review and collate the most suitable submissions, and then send them to the client who posted the opportunity. We consult with you, and the client, to make the process professional and easy.

These are live opportunities. Your registration of interest on the site is just like a professional approach to a business at a networking event. To stand the best chance of success, make your submission really sing. Sell why the client who posted the opportunity should work with you. Excite them. Ask questions. Try and avoid copy and pasting words from elsewhere.

Once the client has chosen their partner, we'll introduce them over email and keep in touch with both parties to see how it's going. Sometimes things progress quickly. Sometimes because of changing priorities for either party, things progress slowly, but you never know - your next big business break could start right here.
