The Korea Electrotechnology Research Institute, has been developing the manufacturing process of SolFab, and it will soon be ready for full scale production. SolFab will be weaved on a rapier loom which allows a comparatively low cost, highly scalable and low environmental impact production process, said 2C Light in a press statement.
“We are very excited to complete this agreement for the exclusive rights to market the SolFab technology, and we look forward to working with product designers from a wide range of industries such as wearable device manufacturers, outdoor equipment makers, military suppliers and perhaps also, drapery, blind or shade makers,” said Simon Dyer, CEO and founder of 2C Light.
SolFab is said to be better than other photovoltaic generators as it is more durable and is manufactured using the roll to roll weaving process. Its partial shade does not block power generation and the amorphous fabric does not require a blocking diode. It also allows logo impression and can support multiple shapes.
“Pricing has not been confirmed, however, it should be comparable to existing photovoltaic technologies plus a small surcharge for the added benefits of this marvellous fabric,” continued Dyer.
Commercial production samples of SolFab are expected to be available in Q2 2017. (KD)
