SAGRO ‐ The project aimed to research and experimental development for the manufacture of photovoltaic systems using third‐generation feedstock photo‐active Sicilian plant products, in order to  lower  manufacturing  costs  by  replacing  electrolyte  gel  and  /  or  semi‐solid  state  counter‐ electrodes with  carbon materials (carbon nanotubes, graphite, graphene) to ensure durability of the devices in line with  the certification rules.

Specifically, the cells developed the photo‐ electrochemical‐sensitized organic dye which is the subject of study for over 20 years (indicated by DSSC stands for Dye Sensitized Solar Cell).

JO Consulting participated to the project in collaboration with the University of Catania
