Global Solar Energy’s Technology Powers CIGS PV Rooftop Installation

High-efficiency Copper Indium Gallium diSelenide (CIGS) solar material manufacturer Global Solar Energy has announced that one of its technologies is powering a large CIGS rooftop installation. This system currently generating solar energy of 820 kW for a manufacturer of plastics in Orgiano, Italy was facilitated by applied solutions and solar modules producer Yohkon Energía SL as well as by photovoltaic (PV) specialist CDM Italy.

The modules produced by Yohkon Energía are based on the CIGS material of Global Solar Energy. Being a thin-film PV technology, CIGS provides considerable benefits over conventional crystalline silicon PV including reduced material cost, flexibility, lightweight as well as enhanced efficiency in extreme and low-light temperatures.

Verified by National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) of the U.S. Department of Energy, Global Solar Energy is one of the few companies to surpass the 13% efficiency mark utilizing CIGS thin-films on a stainless steel substrate that is flexible.

For over six years, Global Solar Energy has been selling its CIGS solutions on a flexible substrate, thereby bringing the CIGS technology’s benefits of high-performance, high-efficiency and low-cost to a gamut of applications. The cells of Global Solar Energy find applications in traditional glass modules, portable solar chargers and next-generation building integrated photovoltaic (BIPV) products among others.
