  1. PVModules with Superior Light Absorption
  2. By 2030 it’s projected that there will be 15 billion battery-driven devices demanding 800 GW of power. There is a global need for clean, indoor solar power that isn’t satisfied by conventional photovoltaic modules. Solaires has developed an inexpensive and easy to print PVModule that is revolutionising the industry. Resulting in better performance, higher energy conversion efficiency (35% for indoor) and a cleaner manufacturing process than traditional materials such as silicon. Solaires’ PVModules are a cleaner, more cost-effective alternative to conventional charging methods. The product enables self-charging of battery-driven devices such as wireless keyboards, smart door locks, electronic shelf labels, sensors, IoT devices, and more.
