Global Solar Energy, Inc., a manufacturer of high-efficiency Copper Indium Gallium diSelenide (CIGS) solar material, unveiled its flexible building integrated photovoltaic (BIPV) module: the PowerFLEX™ BIPV. Specially designed for commercial and industrial rooftops, the company says the PowerFLEX BIPV modules can deliver more power per rooftop than any other solar solution. With the PowerFLEX BIPV module, rooftops can quickly and cost effectively start generating clean energy.
With 12.6% aperture efficiency, Global Solar Energy states that the PowerFLEX BIPV delivers the highest efficiency in the flexible module industry. The module has a large format (5.75 x 0.5m) and a high power density (300W), which the company says enables it to outperform other flexible solar roofing solutions currently on the market, including 50% more energy and power than the current amorphous silicon standard.
