According to the company, Wysips is "based on assembling a thin, photovoltaic surface with a network of micro-lenses" which they say ensures the cells are "invisible to the naked eye." As soon as they are exposed to light, the photovoltaic cells are activated, and begin to charge or power up whatever device they are attached to.
"Sunpartner Technologies developed the Wysips technology to bring photovoltaic transparent and invisible solutions to produce a source of energy closer to the consumer," Ludovic Deblois, president of Sunpartner Technologies, told CNBC's Sustainable Energy.
How does the system work?
"The Wysips technology is made of two parts," Franck Aveline, Sunpartner's R&D director, said. "One which is transforming light into energy, and an optical lens which makes the photovoltaic film invisible for the user."
The company's Wysips Crystal technology can be integrated on to mobile devices – cell phones and e-readers, for example – during the manufacturing process.
