Oxford PV

Technology for more powerful, more affordable solar.

Leaders in perovskite solar technology

Our low cost, highly efficient photovoltaic technology integrates with standard silicon solar cells to dramatically improve their performance. Built into solar panels, our tandem solar cells deliver more power per square meter – critical for delivering more affordable clean energy, accelerating the adoption rate of solar and addressing climate change.

About us

Oxford PVTM – The Perovskite CompanyTM is the pioneer and technology leader in the field of perovskite solar cells.

The company was established in 2010, as a spin-out from the University of Oxford. Today, we have the largest team globally, exclusively focused on developing and commercialising a perovskite based solar technology. We have a research and development site in Oxford, UK and an industrial pilot line near Berlin, Germany enabling the accelerated transfer of our technology into industrial scale silicon solar cell production.  In 2019, we announced plans to move into full commercial manufacturing

Solar panels built with Oxford PV’s perovskite solar cell technology will generate more power, critical for delivering more affordable clean energy, accelerating the adoption rate of solar and addressing climate change.

Our vision

Power the all-electric world

Our perovskite solar cell technology will help accelerate the transition to a world powered by clean energy.

Our mission

Perovskite PV – we make it mainstream

Our perovskite technology will make solar more affordable. That’s why we are committed to bringing it to the world.

As our company prepares to become a commercial solar cell manufacturer, it is the strength of our values that will drive our ambition to achieve our mission – to make perovksite PV mainstream.
