Energy Materials Corp. (EMC), a worldwide firm that focuses on high-speed manufacturing of high-performance solar energy panels, says it has signed a joint improvement settlement (JDA) with Corning Inc.
Working collectively, the businesses are centered on bringing low-cost, high-performance perovskite solar photovoltaic panels and merchandise to the energy business.
The JDA focuses each corporations’ respective capabilities utilizing Corning’s versatile Willow Glass because the printing substrate in EMC’s proprietary (patents pending) printing course of.
“Today’s solar panels require efficiency and long life. Corning Willow Glass greatly expands the process window for manufacturing high-performance perovskite solar modules using high-speed, roll-to-roll printing, while providing an encapsulation barrier that improves product life. We are excited to be working on an exclusive basis with a leading innovator of functional glass products,” says Stephan DeLuca, CEO of EMC.
Roll-to-roll processable versatile Willow Glass is a uniquely tailor-made substrate for printed perovskite-based photovoltaic panels due to thermo-mechanical stability, optical readability, floor high quality and wonderful barrier property, notes the corporate.
Energy Materials Corp. is a U.S.-based innovator and producer that focuses on creating high-performance renewable energy merchandise within the TW-scale.
