January 25 (Renewables Now) - Brazil's green technology company Sunew announced on Wednesday it will develop the world’s largest organic photovoltaic film (OPV) project.
More specifically, the company will apply its SUNEW OPV SLIM films on an area of 2,020 sq m (21,743 sq ft) on the roof of the Learning Centre (NAN) of Brazilian beauty product conglomerate Natura, located in Cajamar, Sao Paulo state.
Due to its organic materials, Sunew's OPV SLIM is simpler to apply and more adaptable to different types of surfaces than previous solar generation technologies, the company stated. Currently, the largest OPV facility is located in La Rochelle, France. It covers an area of 500 sq m.
In addition to power generation, this project will also result in the planting of 2,020 native trees, through a partnership with a local NGO.
