Project Description

dephotex eurecat

DEPHOTEX project aims to obtain organic photovoltaic (OPV) fabrics. They conserve the properties inherent to the textile, which enable the production of new low-cost textile products.

The future challenge will entail getting the fabric itself to capture solar energy. This would mean producing fabrics that can generate clean, renewable, portable and autonomous energy, thanks to their exposure to the sun

Control panels for the interiors of cars, pillows, curtains and jackets are a few of the items on display at the end of the project at several European events. Photovoltaic fabrics present great potential in extensive fields of application: the automotive industry, sports, leisure, home and architecture, among others.
