The project POPUP is to leverage organic photovoltaics for mass production. For this purpose, the consortium intends to develop more efficient and more stable materials for low-cost, industrially applicable printing and coating methods as well as new architectures for flexible and rigid, semitransparent and non-transparent solar modules. The tasks of the LTI comprise developing in-depth understanding and studying new component architectures for semi-transparent and non-transparent solar cells and modules.
The POPUP consortium comprises leading universities, research institutions, and companies who have many years of experience in the organic photovoltaics field and are technology leaders in their respective areas of work. The partners are cooperating along a cross-sectoral and multidisciplinary value chain characterized by the division of labor.
This project has received funding from the Federal Ministry of Education and Research (Contract 03EK3501H).
