The solar PV module industry focus is cell and module efficiency. Manufacturing innovation is secondary. The result – 40 years of incremental commercial product progress.
EMC flips that model. Manufacturing performance and speed is primary. Cell & module efficiency acceleration is built into the process. Commercial product cost AND performance is exponentially improved with product availability assured.
EMC - World Leader in Large Format, High Speed Printing of Perovskite Solar Modules.
Core to the EMC strategy is high volume multiple layer printing of the entire solar device.
Perovskite allows for high speed, high yield ROLL-to-ROLL printing of PV modules.
We have shown that perovskite-based solar cells could be produced quickly and inexpensively using techniques such as roll-to-roll manufacturing . . . . . We are convinced . . . . these materials would forever transform the U.S. solar industry. NREL is a world leader . . . . The time is right . . . .

EMC Model =
Capital Risk Significantly Reduced
Even as solar PV generation becomes cost -competitive . . . . revenues per kW of installed capacity will decline as solar penetration increases until a breakeven point is reached, beyond which further investment in solar PV would be unprofitable. Thus significant cost reductions may be required to make PV competitive at the very substantial penetration levels envisioned . . . .
