PHOTOKIPIA

"Semitransparent Organic and Printed Photovoltaics for Energy Efficient Mediterranean Greenhouses"

NSRF 2014-2020 project
Coordination of LTFN
Duration: 36 months (2018-2021)

PHOTOKIPIA is an innovation research project aims to develop an "Energy Efficient Greenhouse" based on large area Organic and Printed Photovoltaics (OPVs) that allow also the proper growth of greenhouse cultivation. PHOTOKIPIA targets to develop and optimize large-scale Semitransparent-OPVs (S-OPVs) with Roll-to-Roll (R2R) printing techniques on plastic substrates. This will be achieved through the development of printed Transparent Electrodes (TE) and the use of unique in-line nano-layer scribing technique with ultra-fast pulse laser and optical metrology to control the thickness and optical properties of the printed nano-layers from the Infrared to Ultraviolet region of the electromagnetic spectrum for their final application to Mediterranean (MG) type Greenhouses.
The PHOTOKIPIA Project, with the pioneering combination of energy production with Agricultural cultivation through the creation of "Energy Efficient Greenhouse", has great prospects in the Rural and National Economy since solving energy issues for remote Greenhouses or non by enhancing the ecological sustainability and competitiveness of Greek and International Greenhouse cultivations. The objectives of PHOTOKIPIA include the:

  1. Development and Optimization of R2R Printed Transparent Electrodes (optical transparency> 90%, surface resistance <12 Ohm/cm2, thermal stability ≥300°C)
  2. Optimization of R2R Printing Processes for manufacturing large scale S-OPVs and Optical Engineering of nanolayers (6-7% Efficiency, optical transparency ≤30%, power ~ 40W/m2, weight<0.5Kg , life time 8 years)
  3. Development of wireless monitoring system of MG and recording parameters of S-OPV panels
  4. Integration of H-OPV panels to MG and evaluation of their performance and impact on cultivation
