Day4 Energy has announced that BIPV company Gebaude-Solarsysteme (GSS) of Thuringia, Germany, is the second photovoltaics company to join its proprietary manufacturing platform, reports PV-Tech’s BIPV sister site, Design-BuildSolar.
“This deal is an excellent opportunity to introduce and extend the reach of our Day4 branded products into a new vertical market. As we are approaching grid parity in many markets, integration of PV technologies with construction materials will become increasingly important and the overall BIPV market place is likely to grow rapidly. At the same time France and particularly the French roof-integrated market is rapidly becoming an important market within central Europe,” said George Rubin, president of Day4.
“Embedding Day4 technology into new product development for GSS clients such as roofing materials for construction companies and automotive applications allows us to leverage the presence that GSS has cultivated in these market segments over the years,” continued Rubin.
“During our many years of experience in the PV sector we have spent a considerable amount of time looking at possible new module/cell technologies that can take our product development process to the next level. Now we are very excited to combine our product expertise as well as to extend our previous technology and product portfolio, with the unique and established Day4 technology, into the Day4 platform,” said Mr. Hohne, director of GSS.
