Inventux improves thin-film modules: Finalist in Deutscher Gründerpreis

Micromorph thin-film module manufacturer, Inventux Technologies has boosted the yield of its modules by reducing edge stripping, which is said to provide a larger effective surface area. Other improvements were achieved with the use of white coloured reflector film, leading to positive performance tolerances of -0/+5 watts. Inventux advertises its X-Series modules as achieving 10% conversion efficiencies.

"With this innovative leap forward, we are once again positioned to meet the needs and challenges of this dynamic market,” commented Christian Plesser, Chief Sales and Marketing Officer at Inventux Technologies. “Strengthening the distribution of our professional partners as well as providing greater investment security for end customers stands at the centre of our endeavours."

In separate news the thin-film manufacturer has made it into the Top 3 for the Deutscher Gründerpreis (German Founders Award) in the ‘Climbers’ category. The Deutscher Gründerpreis is said to be the most prestigious award for entrepreneurial activities in Germany.

Alongside Inventux, 4Jet Sales+Service GmbH and Orwo Net AG have also been nominated in the ‘Climbers’ category. The awards are to take place in Berlin on June 28th.

    Now that the PV industry has unquestionably entered a new growth phase, all eyes are on which technologies will win through into the mainstream of PV manufacturing. PERC, n-type, p-type bifacial, heterojunction – all have become familiar terms in the ever-growing constellation of solar cell technologies. The question is which will offer manufacturers what they are looking for in improving efficiencies and cutting costs.

  • Manufacturing The Solar Future: The 2014 Production Annual

    Although the past few years have proved extremely testing for PV equipment manufacturers, falling module prices have driven solar end-market demand to previously unseen levels. That demand is now starting to be felt by manufacturers, to the extent that leading companies are starting to talk about serious capacity expansions later this year and into 2015. This means that the next 12 months will be a critical period if companies throughout the supply chain are to take full advantage of the PV industry’s next growth phase.
