Polysolar was established in 2007 by CEO Hamish Watson for the development of next generation Photovoltaic solar materials. A Technology Strategy Board grant with development partners Solvay chemicals and Pilkington glass gave rise to the worlds largest single cell organic photovoltaic (OPV).
As the R&D progressed, Polysolar develop, launched and certified an amorphous silicon transparent glass solar panel (PS-C series) alongside an opaque glazing unit (PS-A series). The product range is enhanced by an all black higher powered micromoprh unit (PS-D series). Technical details on the product and technologies can be found here. The company is further introducing a range of BIPV products that address different architectural requirements, including a new range of high performance transparent glazing panels, façade cladding panels and flexible roofing panels.
Polysolar brings together all of the required elements of a construction project to give end clients the confidence and ability to call Polysolar their choice for building integrated PV projects.
