Welcome to Oxford PV Website
Oxford PV is developing a solid state perovskite solar cell which is optimised to drive a paradigm shift in the aesthetics, performance and cost of Building Integrated Photovoltaic (BIPV) systems.Oxford PV Vision »
Oxford PV Background
Oxford Photovoltaics Ltd is a spin-out from the University of Oxford which has exclusively licensed the rapidly growing portfolio of Intellectual Property developed by Professor Henry Snaith and his academic team of 20 scientists.
“We have at our fingertips a new technology that has the potential to completely transform solar power generation”.
- CEO, Kevin Arthur
Professor Snaith is leading an intensive and wide-ranging programme of research which is aimed at creating individual solar cells which are highly efficient and robust enough to have a lifetime of over 20 years. This research programme provides the building blocks for the Company’s product roadmap. Currently, the solar cell development programme is advancing rapidly with lab cell efficiency of more than 15%, with identified enhancements which should deliver close to 20% efficiency within the next 12 months.
