MiaSolé Sets New World Record for Flexible PV Module Efficiency
May 25th, 2012 by Zachary Shahan
Another day, another solar world record set. I think I need to start a page of solar world records — would be a useful resource, I imagine. The latest is from MiaSolé, which has set a new world record of 15.5% area efficiency for flexible PV solar modules. Here’s more info from MiaSolé:
“MiaSolé, the leading manufacturer of copper indium gallium selenide (CIGS) thin-film photovoltaic solar panels, today 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). MiaSolé’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.”
