In conjunction with the opening of their new production line, Raynergy Tek (Hsinchu, Taiwan), a world leader in organic semiconductor chemistry, and ASCA (Nantes, France) are strengthening their long-lasting partnership through signing an extended cooperation agreement. On this occasion, an ASCA OPV structure has been in-stalled at the new production premises of Raynergy Tek in Taiwan. In order to manifest the progress made together in the last years, the companies have signed a memorandum of understanding with the objective to upscale Raynergy Tek’s newest semiconductor materials. To meet the growing demand for OPV, Raynergy will commission the new production line in November this year.


First Solar, Inc. (Tempe, Arizona) plans to invest approximately $270M in a dedicated research and development (R&D) innovation centre in Perrysburg, Ohio. The new facility is believed to be the first of its scale in the United States and is expected to accelerate American leadership in the development and production of advanced thin film photovoltaics (PV).


The Sunrise project by Epishine (Linköping, Sweden) is the first of its kind to demonstrate an efficient production of innovative indoor solar cells for IoT applications. The Sunrise project has now received a grant of SEK 25 million from the EU's LIFE fund, which will contribute to developing Epishine's production of indoor solar cells further.
