Background

Photo voltaic (PV) technology is a form of solar technology that can convert natural light into electricity. Production of PV technology worldwide has been doubling every two years, making it the world’s fastest-growing energy technology – in the consumer electronics and wireless sensors markets alone powering solutions is a multi billion euro industry. Jonathan meets the team at SolarPrint, who specialise in the area of dye sensitised solar cell (DSSC) technology – the next generation of photo-voltaic technology – which involves the production of power-generating solar cells that can be printed and applied to a range of different surfaces.
