Skanska’s commercial development business unit in Central Eastern Europe will be the first developer worldwide to cover office buildings with semi-transparent perovskite solar cells on a commercial scale.

Perovskite is a crystalline material that has great potential to replace silicon – currently the world’s most popular semiconductor in solar cell applications.

This will revolutionize the approach towards energy self-sufficient buildings. Saule Technologies will be the technology provider.

The initial implementation tests are planned for 2018 in Poland.

Skanska will apply the test-cells onto its projects in 2018, creating a significant milestone towards zero-energy and carbon neutral office investments.

The developer has exclusive rights to use Saule Technologies’ solar cell solutions, as stated in a license-based agreement signed between the companies, in building façades and noise barriers across all Skanska markets worldwide.
