Thin flexible solar panels

FLISOM produces flexible thin-film solar cells with low-cost roll-to-roll manufacturing technology. Our solar cells are based on the compound CIGS, which absorbs light extremely efficiently. Tiny amounts of material and energy are required for their manufacture, and light-to-electricity conversion efficiencies are high. This offers significant advantages over prior-art technologies - from application, business, as well as from environment points of view. Our solar cells are prepared on a polymer (plastic) foil. They are thinner than a sheet of paper and extremely lightweight. Our absorbers are intrinsically stable and hardly degrade during use - on Earth and in space.
