Heliatek GmbH, a leader in organic photovoltaic and a manufacturer of solar films based in Dresden, Germany, announced recently that it has raised €15M from new and existing investors. Strong interest among potential investors led to an extension of the last round of financing. It will enable Heliatek to accelerate its development and speed up its worldwide market entry. The company supplies HeliaFilm to partners in the building and construction materials industry for application directly on facades and roofs of industrial and commercial buildings. These solar films generate green, delocalised, decarbonised electricity.
With the successful installation of a solar-active pilot façade, Heliatek GmbH from Dresden, Germany, and Hoesch Bausysteme GmbH (Kreuztal, Germany) show a first application of their joint product development. At the installation, the organic solar film HeliaFilm was integrated into the siding elements of Hoesch.
Solar films manufactured by the German company Heliatek (Dresden) have been installed on ENGIE Laborelec’s building in Linkebeek, Belgium. The HeliaFilm organic films have been incorporated into the façade and windows and will enable the testing of new solar technology systems.
