Light as your energetic response

The need

With the spread of the Internet of things, new problems arise for industry. An efficient way to address these is to secure a power source for IoT and radio-frequency identification (RFID). 

The solution

Energy harvesting has the potential to solve such issues, providing greater reliability and operational lifetime in wireless sensor networks. Their high efficiency in low-light conditions make Dracula Technologies' organic photovoltaics (OPV) modules great for indoor applications. Over the last decade, organic solar cells have become a promising technology for next generation solar cells with their lightweight structure, flexibility, design and low environmental impact. 

The value proposition

• Generates energy from ambient light through use of specific materials which harvest both natural and artificial light.
• Inkjet printing makes it possible to produce shapes or specific designs and print LAYER® on flexible supports which follow the curves.
• To formulate photo active inks, only organic materials are used. Moreover, LAYER® does not require rare earth elements.
