Summary on Grant Application Form
This programme assesses the feasibility of applying photovoltaic paint directly to product surfaces during the manufacturing process. The result will be seamlessly integrated photovoltaic elements which generate clean electricity (zero carbon emissions) at the point-of-use of the product. Not only will this enable more sustainable applications but it will also enable applications where automatic battery charging, reliability and mobility are critically important. The research is transformative because it will define a new manufacturing sub-field: product integrated photovoltaics (PIPV) which crosses sectors and length scales and therefore has strong disruptive potential.
