We have conducted extensive research in Israel on the use of Organic Photovoltaic (OPV) strips on greenhouses, and have established that it is possible to grow vegetables in greenhouses while generating power without any loss in agricultural yields (in some cases there is an actual increase). Further research is, however, required to prepare this technology for commercial use. We are seeking partners with strong research backgrounds in greenhouse technologies and/or OPV.
