Peafowl Solar Power is a spin-out from Uppsala University, Sweden, that has developed a groundbreaking transparent solar cell. Our technology enables the next generation of smart buildings and self-powered IoT devices.

Optimizing buildings with a new generation of smart glass

Our high-transparency solar cells enable integration of sensors directly into glass, without wires or batteries. Existing buildings can easily be retrofitted with smart building management systems which create a comfortable indoor environment, increase productivity and save energy.

WE ENABLE self-powered devices and sensors FOR the internet of things (IoT)

Internet of Things (IoT) is enabled by smart sensors, essential in applications like energy efficient building systems. Our transparent solar cell technology enables integration of light harvesting from indoor and outdoor light into smart sensors and low-power devices without compromising their aesthetic design. Printed directly onto surfaces or displays, the high transparency makes it virtually invisible. Our plasmonic cells are produced without any rare or toxic materials, warranting a high sustainability rating.

Plasmons are remarkable light harvesters with cross-sections that can be order of magnitude larger than their physical cross-section. For sustainable light harvesting applications such as photodetection, photovoltaics, photocatalysis, or solar driven water remediation, plasmonic nanoparticles is the only realistic solution.
