BAU. Solar Power Becomes More Flexible

/

Dresden-based Heliatek used CES in Las Vegas and BAU in Munich to show off its latest innovation in flexible solar panels using organic materials to create lighter, more versatile photovoltaic modules for harnessing the sun’s power.

The new technology runs at a lower temperature than products currently on the market, allowing the use of cheap, durable plastics. The resulting panels weigh up to 95% less than traditional models. The company’s Heliafilm can be paired with almost any building material, suffers no drop in output at higher temperatures and eliminates the need for expensive ventilation systems.

With a new round of funding reaching €80 million, Heliatek hopes to streamline the production process to make the product cheaper than conventional solar panels without sacrificing the ability to produce its unique solar film in any size.
