G24 Innovations (G24i) says it has made the first-ever commercial shipment of dye-sensitized solar cells-based (DSSC) PV modules to Hong Kong-based consumer electronics bag manufacturer Mascotte Industrial Associates.
The G24i photovoltaic panel will be integrated into a range of bags targeting the consumer market. The G24i module is based on a technology invented by Prof. Michael Gratzel, Ph. D, director of the Laboratory of Photonics and Interfaces at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Lausanne, Switzerland.
G24i first acquired a license to manufacture the technology in 2006, with unlimited worldwide distribution rights. The DSSC PV modules are extremely lightweight and durable, and produce electricity in low-light and indoor conditions, the company says.
