Australian perovskite solar cell (PSC) technology company, Greatcell Solar, has announced it has signed a non-exclusive Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with JinkoSolar.

JinkoSolar is one of the world’s largest photovoltaic (PV) solar panel manufacturers, headquartered in China.

“We are delighted to jointly explore commercialisation opportunities with Jinko for our revolutionary technology in China,” Greatcell managing director Richard Caldwell said.

“Jinko is very progressive, recognises the potential of our emerging technology and is a world leader in the solar sector.

“Moreover, Jinko has a deep understanding of risk-managed technology development and the benefits of economies of scale in manufacture. The possibilities for collaboration are enormous.”

Greatcell will make available developmental Perovskite Solar Cell (PSC) devices and associated information on a strictly confidential basis to enable Jinko to further evaluate the technology with the long-term aim of entering into a formal agreement with Greatcell to commercialise the technology and establish large scale manufacturing.
