A new study commissioned by the solar energy technology leader Midsummer (Stockholm, Sweden) shows that the company’s proprietary flexible CIGS thin film solar module manufacturing process is much more environmentally friendly than other solar module production processes like e.g. for silicon modules.
With effect from 1 November 2018, Guido van Tartwijk has become the new CEO of Heliatek GmbH (Dresden, Germany), a leading organic photovoltaic (OPV) innovator. He succeeds Thibaud Le Séguillon, who left Heliatek in July 2018. Together with CFO Jan Kiel, who has been with Heliatek since July, he forms the new dual management team of the company.
The University of Twente (The Netherlands) and Solliance Solar Research have started a long term collaboration, which focusses on the integration of thin film solar technology in building materials and flexible applications, and on further development and analyses of perovskite based solar cells. The University of Twente has joined all three shared research programmes at Solliance Solar Research as a partner.
