CIGS solar panels: efficiency, aesthetics and sustainability combined

Scroll down to explore

Sustainable solution

Achieve energy cost savings

Our CIGS panels offer high efficiency, boasting 10-20% higher production than crystalline solar panels annually. This increased efficiency is attributed to their superior absorption coefficient and broader spectrum utilization of sunlight. Consequently, CIGS panels begin generating electricity earlier in the day and continue producing power until late evening.

Furthermore, CIGS panels exhibit remarkable resistance to shade and temperature variations, ensuring consistent performance throughout the day. Even with 10% shading, CIGS performance only drops by 10-20%, unlike crystalline panels, which typically experience 60-80% reductions.

Aesthetics

Preserving Aesthetics

Our Building Applied Photovoltaics (BAPV) solutions effortlessly combine functionality with aesthetics, ensuring that your building preserves its architectural elegance while leveraging solar energy. Specifically tailored for steel roofs, including standing seam and snap-lock profiles, our solar solutions seamlessly integrate onto the roof surface, perfectly matching its dimensions. This approach not only meets technical requirements but also satisfies architects’ aesthetic preferences, making it a solution embraced by both architects and engineers. With our solar solutions, environmental consciousness isn’t just practical – it’s also stylish.

LCA

Improve LCA Calculations

Achieving energy certifications and improving Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) calculations are crucial in promoting environmentally friendly construction practices. Our solution combines aesthetics with the requirements of low-emission buildings.

Calculations

Skip Static Calculations with our innovative solar panels for buildings

Traditional solar panels often require extensive structural calculations due to their heavy weight. However, with our solution, that’s not the case. Our panels feature an ultra-light design, measuring 3 mm thick and weighing only 2.2 kg per square meter. This makes them ideally suited for steel roofs without the need for additional structural calculations.

Eco-friendly

Choose Eco-Friendly Solar panels for buildings

Our CIGS solar solution sets a new standard for environmental sustainability by emitting only a third of the CO2 compared to their crystalline counterparts. With minimal environmental impact, our CIGS solar panels are designed to be eco-friendly, emit no harmful gases or substances, and require less material to produce than other types of solar panels.
