MISSISSAUGA — Worksport Ltd announces that it has entered into a joint collaboration with Greatcell Solar Italy.

Worksport partners with solar providers for high efficiency mono-crystalline panels for their Terravis systems, currently available for pre-order. Management believes the inaugural Terravis solar cover and COR energy storage system will establish a loyal market, and one that will look forward to technological enhancements across the Company’s product lines. And this is why the Company is excited to partner with Greatcell.

Greatcell, headquartered in Australia, has been building on an IP portfolio covering 3rd-Generation Solar Technologies since 2012. Through its R&D, it is creating low-cost, bespoke, renewable electricity transducers, based on PSC, that can compete against all other forms of energy production.

“Perovskite Solar Cells provide upwards of double the energy conversion efficiency compared to mono-crystalline silicon – even in shade and low light – require simpler manufacturing processes, and are light weight,” states Greatcell Solar Italia Managing Director Dr. Luca Sorbello.

Greatcell is specially positioned to commercialize PSC technology through micropower and midi-power cells for IoT, mobile, and other rechargeables – markets that are measured in the billions of devices.

Greatcell management immediately realized that Perovskite would be a good fit as its band gap photoluminescence would allow the Solis tonneau cover to collect a wider spectrum of light to convert into electricity, which will make future iterations of the Worksport and Terravis Energy solar line more competitive.
