Swiss and U.S. scientists have developed silicon multi-junction solar cells with new record efficiencies between 32.8 and 35.9 percent.
The frameless monocrystalline double glazed solar module from SI Module sets itself apart through its particularly high cell spacing.
The researchers at CSEM in Neuchâtel have developed a process that allows them to print solar modules with high-resolution photographs. The first prototypes are ready and are currently being exhibited. This gives architects another tool to incorporate photovoltaics into the design of façades.
The trend for business cooperation in the solar sector continues. The two inverter manufacturers, Steca and Kostal, have agreed on a close partnership, which comes into effect immediately.
The new inverter Solarix PLI is the first product from Steca Elektronik which offers an all-in-one package.
Rope constructions could be an interesting solution for dual-use solar systems as agrophotovoltaics, Hans Günter Czaloun elaborates in his guest article. The South Tyrolean engineer has several patents in this field and exhibited a prototype model at Intersolar Europe 2017 in Munich.
The Solarteg tile is a new technology solution, a photovoltaik solar tile easy and quick to install.
Iran offers promising business opportunities for European solar companies. KPV Solar, Fronius and Kioto Solar opened a new 1.2 MW PV park in the Special Economic Zone of Rafsanjan in south-eastern Iran.
