MiaSolé reached 15.5 percent CIS flexible module conversion efficiency
 
MiaSolé, the leading manufacturer of copper indium gallium selenide (CIS) thin-film photovoltaic solar panels, announced that the U.S. Department of Energy’s National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) has confirmed a 15.5 percent aperture area efficiency on commercial size flexible PV module (total area 1.68m2).

  • 15.5 percent aperture area efficiency on commercial size flexible PV module was confirmed by NREL
  • MiaSolé’s cell manufacturing technology is based on proprietary sputtering roll-to-roll process

MiaSole’s record represents over 2 points of improvement compared to the previous world record for flexible PV of 13.4 percent set earlier this year.

MiaSolé’s proprietary cell technology is creating new and compelling opportunities for their customers by bringing high efficiencies to flexible applications. Companies in the building, vehicle and fabric integrated PV markets that were previously unable to realize the potential of solar, can now explore new and innovative applications for high efficiency, flexible solar panels.

The cells for the record device were made using MiaSolé’s existing production lines in Santa Clara, CA. MiaSolé’s large area flexible PV module was submitted for evaluation by NREL as part of the company’s ongoing process for third party verification.
