Flisom to preview Swiss-built flexible solar module technology at Intersolar 2017
- Swiss based Flisom presents new, ultra-light, rollable and customisable solar technology platform.
- Ultralight panels with 20x power to weight ratio of today’s silicon solar panels unveiled at Intersolar Europe.
- Flisom unveils customisable solar technology to enable breakthrough applications.
Flisom AG, a Swiss solar enterprise, in which Tata Industries of the $103bn Tata group is a strategic investor and the Swiss Federal Laboratories for Materials Science and Technology (Empa) is a technology partner, will give visitors a glimpse of its new product range at Intersolar 2017.
The company, headquartered in Zurich, Switzerland, has spent over a decade developing high-efficiency CIGS (Copper Indium Gallium Selenide) thin film solar modules using proprietary roll-to-roll manufacturing technologies.
Flisom’s products are based on the technology developed by its research partner Empa, which had achieved a world-record conversion efficiency of 20.4% in a flexible CIGS solar cell. This research partnership ensures that Flisom products remain at the cutting edge of solar thin film offerings.
Flisom modules are super thin (under 2mm), have a uniform, jet black appearance, are ultra-light (in some versions under 500g/m2) with a power to weight ratio of up to 20 times more than conventional silicon panels, and are strong, safe and rollable.
