Solar Press to optimise organic PV modules for indoor energy harvesting

Solar Press to optimise organic PV modules for indoor energy harvesting

Organic Photovoltaic (OPV) development company Solar Press is investigating the potential for flexible plastic-based OPV modules to be used as a power source for remote autonomous sensors within buildings. The ‘energy harvesting’ project brings together a range of partners possessing world-class capability in low power sensors, OPV and energy management and will offer the potential for low cost ‘Fit-and-Forget’ sensors for carbon dioxide, humidity and temperature monitoring integrated into a smart wireless sensor network. The focus of the project is the development of self-powered wireless CO2 sensors to monitor air quality and optimise ventilation while reducing building energy consumption. Solar Press is partnering with Gas Sensing Solutions Ltd and Seamless Sensing and the project is supported by funding from the Technology Strategy Board (TSB) . End user assessment for...
