Headquartered in Sunderland, Power Roll has developed a unique, flexible, lightweight solar film capable of producing ultra-low-cost green electricity that is up to 20 times cheaper to make than existing flexible solar photovoltaic (PV) technologies. Power Roll’s technology simplifies manufacturing by eliminating multiple, expensive process steps that other PV technologies require, and uses high speed roll-to-roll production processes. Power Roll’s technology was invented by its Chief Scientist Dr Alexander Topping, originally from Seaham, County Durham, and ex-Oxford University with over 25 years expertise in specialist coatings.

Power Roll’s film is suitable for non-load-bearing rooftops, building integration, transport, portable applications, off-grid projects and IoT sensors, and can also be used for energy storage and to manufacture capacitors.
