“Perovskite has the potential to radically improve the efficiency of solar PV and meet the world’s energy demand into the future”
Frank Averdung, CEO of Oxford PV
Pioneering technology which will transform solar power generation
Oxford Photovoltaics Limited (Oxford PV) was founded in 2010 as a spin-out from the University of Oxford to commercialise a new technology for thin-film solar cells.
Our Co-Founder, Prof Henry Snaith, was amongst the first in the world to recognise the potential of a chemical structure called perovskite to act as a low-cost, highly efficient solar cell absorber material to convert sunlight into electricity.
We have exclusively licensed the rapidly growing portfolio of fundamental intellectual property developed by Professor Henry Snaith and his academic team.
Oxford PV is the first mover, leading the commercialization of perovskite technology.
