NEXT has discovered and developed an entirely new generation of organic photovoltaics (PV) based on proprietary, semiconducting inks made from solution-processed small molecules.
Our organic semiconducting inks are printed/coated using a roll-to-roll process to make transparent solar cells that are lightweight, flexible, and extremely inexpensive. This soluble small molecule organic photovoltaic (SSM-OPV) technology developed by NEXT removes critical development and manufacturing barriers faced by previous generations of organic photovoltaic technology. These printable solar generating coatings enable NEXT SSM-OPV technology to be uniquely integrated into a range of innovative building-integrated applications, including windows, spandrel glass, and roofing materials.
Next is pleased to have received validation in the form of government grant award funding.
