Verified Lifetime For Konarka Organic Photovoltaic Solar Cells


Konarka Technologies Inc., the developer of Power Plastic technology, says the Energy Research Centre of the Netherlands (ECN) has verified that the company's flexible, organic-based photovoltaic solar cells demonstrate high lifetime potential.

ECN conducted comprehensive environmental testing under accelerated conditions – including high-temperature storage and prolonged illumination – to reach this conclusion, Konarka says.

‘We have been operating PV cells with similar architectures on a roof in Boston for more than a year, with little or no degradation,’ says Rick Hess, president and CEO at Konarka. ‘We are proud to have demonstrated outstanding high lifetime for flexible cells packaged with commercially available, low-cost materials.’
