Heliatek sets new OPV world record efficiency of 13.2%

08.02.2016

Heliafilm® - superior low light and high temp-erature energy harvesting performance.

Dresden, Germany - 8 February 2016 - Heliatek R&D teams reached a record conversion efficiency of 13.2% for an OPV multi-junction cell, setting a new world record for the direct conversion of sunlight into electricity using organic photovoltaic cells. The measurement was independently confirmed by Fraunhofer CSP.

Thanks to the excellent low light and high temperature behavior of the organic semiconductor, the electricity generation of the newly developed cells corresponds to the output of conventional solar cells with 16 to 17% efficiency when both are under real world conditions.
