Eight19 is a developer and manufacturer of third generation solar cells based on printed plastic. Originating from organic photovoltaic technology developed at Cambridge University’s Cavendish Laboratory, the company was spun out in 2010 with an initial investment of £4.5m. Eight19’s flexible, robust, lightweight solar technology now offers its customers design flexibility to enable innovative new applications of photovoltaics. Benefitting from high-volume manufacturing, low fabrication costs and with low embedded energy, the company’s plastic solar modules are particularly well suited to consumer and off-grid markets. The company is working with several companies on applications of indoor energy harvesting where its technology provides excellent low-light performance.
