EUROGLAS at Intersolar 2010
The TCO coated, textured front glass EUROGLAS PV Hy TCO is produced in Haldensleben. The texturing of the surface improves "the Light Trapping", which leads to an increase of the cell efficiency. The light penetrated into the solar cell is more strongly absorbed by multiple reflection at the internal boundary surfaces and converted into the electric current. Both optical and electrical parameters are selectable with the EUROGLAS Hy TCO, the individual desires of the customers are considered in each regards. The new front glass increases the technical performance of the PV modules and can be processed substantially, more easily and economically.
EUROGLAS also shows the EUROGLAS PV Flat. Solar customers need a thinner encapsulating material for the tempered safety glass because of the smaller distortion within the further processing. The use of the thinner foil leads to a substantial cost saving. The cost reduction for the EURO-GLAS solar customers is a weighty argument, measured at the very high square meter number of the thin film solar cells, for which EUROGLAS PV Flat is used.
During the three fair days our EUROGLAS experts will welcome you gladly at the stand A4.222, in hall A4!
