The aim is to improve the efficiency, the lifespan and the cost price of the solar cells. To make the production process and the used raw materials more sustainable. The emphasis is on, among other things, the development of a new generation of molecular semiconductors. These materials ensure that solar energy can be collected and if electrical energy can be delivered to the power grid. The commercial solar panels often use the metal silicon as a semiconductor, but the ‘plastic‘ solar cells are based on the plastic fullerene. Fullerene can be produced sustainably and because a thousand times less is needed than silicon is also greatly saved on the material.
