Oxford PV has announced it has moved its UK based headquarters and research and development facilities to a new 25,000 sqft site in Oxford, UK, further supporting the accelerated commercialisation of its perovskite on silicon tandem solar cell technology.

According to the announcement the new site consolidates and strengthens Oxford PV's UK based perovskite photovoltaic research and development activities, by providing a larger, controlled laboratory environment, with ample space for expansion of its equipment and expertise in the future.

Oxford PV's research and development team at the site, will continue to focus on advancing its perovskite photovoltaic technology.

Additionally, Oxford PV's UK team will continue to support the transfer of its advanced lab based perovskite on silicon tandem solar cell technology to industrial scale processes and equipment, an activity that takes place at the company’s pilot line, in Brandenburg an der Havel, Germany, in close collaboration with its joint development partner – a major manufacturer of silicon solar cells and modules.
