FACESS - Flexible Autonomous Cost Efficient Energy Source and Storage


The general objectives of this project are the following: to manufacture efficient organic solar cells (OSC) and a thin film battery (TFB) on flexible substrate using commercially available materials and cost efficient roll-to-roll (R2R) mass production techniques, printing, as well as integrate a control transistor circuitry on a foil.

The ultimate goal is to integrate these three structures to a single assembly resulting in a flexible, fully autonomous energy source. In this assembly organic solar cells harvest the solar energy and charge the thin film batteries which provide the electricity for an external load. The Si-based transistor circuitry integrated on the foil controls the charge operation.
