Textiles become photovoltaic
Stand number: 21
DEPHOTEX develops photovoltaic textiles with properties inherent to fabrics: flexibility, low weight, durability, water/dust resistance, only feasible if the fabric itself turns to be photovoltaic.
The exhibition will show examples of applications from wearable or mobile consumer goods like jackets, pillows or car dashboards for charging iPhones or GPS to larger area surfaces like curtains or coverings able to get electricity for lighting or warming. Visitors will observe the different layers of a textile cell and see a real working textile cell connected, as well as check its flexibility.
