Kyung-In Synthetic Unveil Solar Cells That Can Be Printed on Industrial Printers

Kyung-In Synthetic, a South Korean firm with a background in dyes and inks has developed an inexpensive way to produce solar cells that can be printed on a regular industrial printer. The paper-thin, flexible solar cells have the potential to provide power to communities in developing countries where the electricity supply is infrequent and unreliable. Scott Watkins, Director of Overseas Business at Kyung-In Synthetic (KISCO) has witnessed first hand how this technology has helped poor urban communities in India live off-grid, he said “Its success is due to its cost effectiveness and simplicity. A 10×10 cm solar cell film is enough to generate as much as 10-50 watts per square meter.”
