Flisom wins best Thin Film Module at the Solar + Power Awards 2017
Niederhasli, Switzerland, September 28 2017 – Flisom AG is pleased to announce that it has been awarded best Thin Film Module for its next generation CIGS solar panels by Solar + Power magazine.
Solar + Power hosts the annual awards which recognises outstanding achievements of companies in the renewable and sustainable energy space. Flisom’s solar modules are extremely light (as light as 200g/m2), and highly efficient (up to 50x power-to-weight ratio compared to silicon PV panels) and ultra-thin (under 2mm). In addition, their uniform, jet-black design offers beautiful aesthetics, making the technology suitable for use anywhere that aesthetics are also important.
Since 2013, Flisom has invested in developing proprietary manufacturing equipment and components, creating a unique ‘roll to roll’ manufacturing process which can replicate the laboratory success of CIGS solar technology on an industrial scale. It is already scaling up production in Switzerland to fulfil incoming orders.
The award was given to Flisom on 26 September at the Solar + Power official awards ceremony and reception in Amsterdam.
Flisom’s Chief Executive Officer, Rahul Budhwar said;” We are thrilled to win this award and have our exciting solar film technology recognised by the industry. We’ve taken our time to engineer a product that looks better and performs better than the competition and can be used on products and in places where adoption of solar energy was not possible before – like cars, light weight roofs and drones.”
