Paragraf, a Cambridge-based graphene technology developer, has announced a joint development project targeting new solar technology with Verditek, a clean technology company. The objective is to harness the potential advantages of graphene to improve the output of solar power generation over state of the art cells and panels.
Paragraf’s proprietary manufacturing process of large scale, high quality graphene will be used for integration with Verditek's solar technology. The program will investigate, develop and verify the application of graphene to solar devices, imparting the advanced electrical and mechanical properties of graphene to solar cells to realize a new generation of highly robust, ultra-light weight panels that will potentially revolutionize the photovoltaic market.
Verditek has also secured terms for the delivery of the final piece of machinery to be shipped to Greenflex’s new facility in San Marino, Italy, which is currently in the process of securing TUV certification.
