Heliatek GmbH, a leader in organic photovoltaic and a manufacturer of solar films based in Dresden, Germany, announced recently that it has raised €15M from new and existing investors. Strong interest among potential investors led to an extension of the last round of financing. It will enable Heliatek to accelerate its development and speed up its worldwide market entry. The company supplies HeliaFilm to partners in the building and construction materials industry for application directly on facades and roofs of industrial and commercial buildings. These solar films generate green, delocalised, decarbonised electricity.
With the successful installation of a solar-active pilot façade, Heliatek GmbH from Dresden, Germany, and Hoesch Bausysteme GmbH (Kreuztal, Germany) show a first application of their joint product development. At the installation, the organic solar film HeliaFilm was integrated into the siding elements of Hoesch.
The White Paper “OE-A Roadmap for Organic and Printed Electronics”, 7th Edition, looks ahead at the future and presents key trends, various application examples and challenges in the field of organic and printed electronics. The 100-page Roadmap compiled by the OE-A (Organic and Printed Electronics Association), a working group within VDMA, shows findings in the following fields of application: Organic LED (OLED) Lighting, Organic Photovoltaics (OPV), Flexible and OLED Displays, Electronics and Components, and Integrated Smart Systems. The document also provides an overview of materials and substrates, as well as printing processes and other production techniques. The goal is to provide a common ground for industry and science when it comes to planning.
