    30 April 2012, 10:38

    Schueco has launched an up-rated version of its ProSol TF module, claiming a 30% increase in electrical output over its standard offering. The new thin-film module, ProSol TF+, is a tandem junction module capable of being customized for a range of BIPV applications.

  • Linuo Power offers colored modules for BIPV applications

    20 June 2011, 10:08

    Linuo Power Group has introduced c-Si modules with different cell color characteristics that are designed to be attractive to the building integrated photovoltaic (BIPV) market. A special membrane plating technology is used to color the cells while limiting the impact on cell/module conversion efficiency.

  • New Product: Canadian Solar introduces BIPV module line

    09 October 2010, 16:41

    Product Briefing Outline: Canadian Solar BIPV modules use double low iron tempered glass with solar cells laminated in between, making them ideal for roofs, skylights and/or facades. The modules use double low iron tempered glass with solar cells laminated in between, this means that the fundamental ideal of building material to generate electrical power is now a reality. With a 55W-115W/m2 output depending on cell spacing; the cells are made up of crystalline (mono or poly 125mm/ 156mm).

  • New Product: Dow Chemical introduces solar shingle BIPV

    09 October 2009, 17:44 | Comments (1)

    Product Briefing Outline: Dow Chemical has unveiled the Dow Powerhouse solar shingle. This BIPV technology incorporates solar panel capability in the form of a building material. Dow Solar Solutions (DSS) integrates low-cost, thin-film CIGS PV cells into a proprietary roofing shingle design, which represents a multifunctional solar energy generating roofing product. The product design reduces installation costs because the conventional roofing shingles and solar generating shingles are installed simultaneously by roofing contractors.

  • New Product: System Photonics BIPV modules for ventilated facades

    09 October 2009, 17:04

    Product Briefing Outline: System Photonics has introduced a commercial-scale BIPV ‘ROOF’ collection system that is designed for ventilated façades. The product line uses ceramic materials combined with next-generation crystalline silicon photovoltaic cells to allow for flexibility in design without compromising functionality. These BIPV modules also take advantage of DuPont PV5300 Series encapsulant sheets made of clear, tough ionomer.

  • New Product: SINVERT PV inverters from Siemens offer field-proven performance and reliability

    25 September 2008, 20:27

    Siemens AG has developed and manufactured inverters for photovoltaic applications since 1987. The latest products of this development are the SINVERT PV inverters, a family of three phase grid-connected inverters in the range of 60kVA up to 1700kVA.
