Sustainability from conception:

Sunew is the world leader in the manufacture of Organic Photovoltaic (OPV), with an installed production capacity of 600,000 m² per year.

The developed production method is continuous and highly scalable. The materials used are organic, abundant in nature and non-toxic in a roll-to-roll printing process similar to the textile or graphic industry. Also, it requires low temperatures and therefore low energy demand. OPV is the greenest energy available and Sunew is at the forefront of technology for its manufacture and delivery to the market.
