PowerFlex CIGS materials for solar cells

Global Solar Energy, a manufacturer of CIGS thin-film solar cells on a foil substrate, has introduced its PowerFlex material. The company says the lightweight, conformable material is being integrated into products to combine power and building material functionality, expanding the potential of solar applications.

"The unique combination of high efficiency, low cost and flexibility offered by PowerFlex opens Global Solar to new emerging markets, such as building-integrated PV," says Mike Gering, CEO of Global Solar.

"Now, in addition to supplying our thin-film cells to the traditional glass module markets, we can furnish companies with highly-efficient, affordable and flexible material to be built directly into commercial, residential and government products of their design," he adds.
