A Polish leader in research and design of photovoltaic systems has developed ultra-thin photovoltaic glass modules that offer great possibilities of application in construction engineering and may be installed on structures with limited load bearing capacity of roofs and walls. The company would like to introduce these systems to the construction industry, acting as a manufacturer and technical support provider. Manufacturing or technical cooperation agreement is considered.
This company is one of the first Polish companies specialised in designing and installing systems based on photovoltaic technology (PV) and building integrated photovoltaic systems (BIPV). They are already well-established in the Polish market, yet continuously initiate new endeavours aimed at improving its competitive advantage and enhancing the efficiency and effectiveness of their services. Significant investments in the research on products, as well as cooperation with domestic and foreign companies and R&D entities dealing with photovoltaic technologies, enables production and implementation of non-standard solutions, custom-tailored for specific designs, and adjusted to customers' requirements in terms of dimensions and application.
One of the newest products developed by this company is an ultra-light system of photovoltaic modules based on ultra-thin glass panels. The modules are used as renewable sources of energy and can be installed as parts of facades of newly-built or modernised buildings. The ultra-thin photovoltaic glass modules are suitable for transparent and non-transparent façade elements, skylights, ventilated facades or photovoltaic façade blinds, and also for photovoltaic panels installed on flat or inclined roofs. The façade modules may be installed in residential houses, commercial and office buildings as well as light structure industrial halls or warehouses.
The company is interested in introducing these systems to the construction industry, acting as a manufacturer and technical support provider. Partnership on the basis of a manufacturing or technical cooperation agreement is considered.
Reduced weight of photovoltaic module - the load per square metre is five times lower in comparison with other systems, which makes it possible to install them both on newly-built and existing halls (where photovoltaic modules were not provided for in the original construction design).
Increased output (higher transmittance factor). The glass used in the offered ultra-thin photovoltaic modules is much thinner (0.8 mm) in comparison with other modules available on the market (at least 3 mm). Additionally, the offered modules use modern absorbers, such as highly effective silicon cells (23%) and organic dye-sensitized solar cells (DSSC). That allows to achieve higher efficiency of power generation combined with improved durability and resistance to weather conditions.
Extra-hard surface – chemical reinforcement of glass (ion exchange) improves its compressive strength, tensile and bending strength, impact strength and increases its hardness. Surface hardness of glass used in the offered modules is approximately 8 times higher than in float glass.
Manufacturing or technical cooperation agreement is considered - the company is searching for a partner interested in cooperating with a manufacturer and provider of innovative solutions in photovoltaics, capable of providing technical support in developing building-integrated photovoltaic systems.
Considering the technical limitations of the available building-integrated photovoltaic systems (weight), what will be important for the market success of the offered product is the possibility to install these ultra-light photovoltaic modules in light-structure manufacturing halls and warehouses as well as buildings with lower load bearing capacity, insufficient for other photovoltaic systems.
