Oxford PV

Oxford PV was spun out of Oxford University’s Clarendon Laboratory by Professor Henry Snaith in 2010 to commercialise a novel technology for thin-film solar cells, called Perovskite, a highly efficient absorbent material which converts sunlight to electricity at a much lower cost than market leading silicon.

Although dozens of research groups around the world are working on Perovskite, Oxford PV has a significant first-mover advantage in a range of commercial applications and a very strong portfolio of patents protecting its IP. Given Perovskite’s demonstrated efficiencies, Oxford PV has the potential to disrupt the existing 100GW solar cell market, which is forecast to grow to tenfold by 2023.
