Wysips®, developed by Sunpartner Technologies, are invisible photovoltaic components that can turn any surface into a solar panel, able to generate renewable energy from any light source with zero impact on design aesthetics.
This powerful technology combines optical systems and photovoltaic cells in a revolutionary way that makes them transparent and invisible to the naked eye. Seamlessly integrated in a phone's screen, a watch, or glazing, Wysips® creates its own perpetual energy reserves by producing electricity from ambient light. This invisible PV component generates enough electricity to power the device, with enough left over to power new features or nearby objects. For example, Wysips® Crystal can provide most, and in some cases all, of the energy needs of a mobile phone or wearable tech like a smartwatch. Wysips® Glass can independently power windows' integral blinds, lighting, automated shading systems, and automatic opening/closing systems-without connecting to the grid.
Today, the needs of Sunpartner Technologies' clients require large-scale production starting in Q2 2016. To meet this strong demand, Sunpartner Technologies approached Laibao Hi-Tech Co, whose expertise in high-tech glass is complementary and whose experience in large-scale manufacturing is widely recognized.
Specifically, this collaboration with Laibao Hi-Tech Co will ultimately lead to the production of several million parts per year. This project may also result in an industrial joint venture to supply screen, telephone, and smartwatch makers, who would integrate Wysips® technology under license from Sunpartner. Mass production is scheduled to begin by the second quarter of 2016.
