Futurasun acquires a solar perovskite startup



Italian module manufacturer Futurasun has bought Rome-based Solertiks. Now it aims to bring its perovskite-based solar cell technology closer to commercial production.

Solartix is ​​a spinoff of Tor Vergata University in Rome. It was created under the Organic Solar Center (CHOSE) founded by Professor Aldo Di Carlo, who will now take over as chairman of the scientific committee of the new company.

“Perovskite is the future of efficient photovoltaics, and in this particular R&D segment we cannot afford to be key players working with those dedicated to scientific research at the highest academic level,” said Futurasun CEO Alessandro Barin. .

The deal is part of the company’s expansion plans, which include building a 10 GW solar cell factory in China and a 3 GW module factory in Italy. It currently has 1 GW of solar module capacity at two locations in China. Its Italian staff focuses on research and development in areas such as interdigitated back-contact (IBC) cells, cylindrical strips, glass-to-glass solutions and discrete parts.
