Innovate UK has prepared a case study about our trials using flexible solar in Zambia and the Himalaya.
12 March 2021
With our partners, we are installing modular systems that comprise lightweight, portable solar PV to generate energy and an energy storage capability to enable energy use at night. We are using our partner BiPVCo’s light weight and flexible solar modules within the system to provide valuable benchmark data. This will help evaluate the performance of Power Roll’s innovative solar film, which will be used in the next stage of the project.

About Power Roll
Power Roll, headquartered in Sunderland, has developed a unique, flexible, lightweight solar film capable of producing ultra-low-cost green electricity that is up to 20 times cheaper to make than existing flexible PV. By applying different coatings to its versatile microgroove design, Power Roll can also use the film for energy storage and to manufacture capacitors. Power Roll’s microgroove film is suitable for non-load-bearing rooftops, building integration, transport, portable applications, off-grid projects and IoT sensors.
