About the Business

Halocell Australia is doing research & development on Perovskite solar cells, with the aim of being one of the first in the world to commercialise the technology for indoor/low light applications such a IoT devices. We currently hold the world record efficiency for low light modules, beating the performance of currently available cells by a factor of 4. We are currently TRL 6, with a rapidly advancing development program with the aim of producing these cells on a fully automated Roll-2-Roll line. Our young and enthusiastic team of scientists and engineers in Bomen, NSW are dedicated to hard work and innovative solutions to problems.
