a company producing organic solar cells in Kitzingen – 11.11.2019

In November we visited the company Opvius in Kitzingen, which produces printed organic solar cells. We got a great insight in the unique production, the potentials, the products and applications. Stephan Hildebrandt, a graduate from industrial design at the Burg, who now works for Opvius developing solar curtains, also told about the hurdles the technology is still facing – especially from a design perspective.

Thanks to Ralph Paetzold and Stephan Hildebrandt for the insights and guided tour
