Global Solar Energy exhibits CIGS Technology at Intersolar 2009
Where: Hall A1, Stand 240
Intersolar 2009 New Trade Fair Centre
When: Wednesday, May 27 through Friday, May 29, 2009
Who: Ronald Erdmann, Co-Managing Director, Global Solar Energy Deutschland
Tim Teich, Vice President, Sales & Marketing
Charles Gambill, Director, Corporate Products
Why: Global Solar is the only manufacturer in full-scale production of CIGS (Copper Indium Gallium diSelenide) PV cells on a flexible substrate. The Company is dedicated to constantly improving the efficiency of its solar cells and overall manufacturing process. Global Solar achieved 10% average solar cell efficiency - the first CIGS company to reach this milestone in a production environment.
Global Solar deposits CIGS on flexible, stainless-steel substrate via a roll-toroll process. The Company's advanced machinery design decreases manufacturing costs by streamlining CIGS production, increasing throughput and improving material utilization.
Global Solar's recent company milestones include:
- Global Solar is currently managing two new manufacturing plants. The first plant, at the Company's headquarters in Tucson, Arizona, USA opened in March of 2008 has full production capacity of 40 megawatts (MW). The second plant is located in Berlin Adlershof Technology Park and was opened in fall of 2008 with a production capacity of 35 MW. Together, these plants set industry records for CIGS production capacity and efficiency.
- Deploying the world's largest solar array using its CIGS thin film photovoltaic technology: Located at Global Solar Energy's manufacturing facility in Tucson, Arizona, the 750-kilowatt (kW) system is the first commercial-scale array using the company's highly efficient CIGS technology.
- Partnering with leading U.S. manufacturers under the US Department of Energy Solar America Initiative, the company has taken the clear lead to enabling the creation of innovative building integrated photovoltaic (BIPV) products in the form of a flexible solar roof shingle.
