January 2017 – Bitterfeld-Wolfen
Solibro set a new record for CIGS PV modules with an efficiency of 17%! A STC power of 159.6 Wp was confirmed by the renowned test institute TÜV Rheinland in Cologne, Germany. The module has standard Solibro SL2 module dimensions (1190 mm x 789.5 mm) and the power corresponds to 17.0 % conversion efficiency based on the total area of 0.940 m2 and the aperture area efficiency is measured with 17.9 %. The module was manufactured at the Solibro production facility in Bitterfeld-Wolfen using standard production tools and processes as well as commercial product technology.
With this result Solibro verifies that CIGS products are on a very high efficiency level, similar to the best commercial polycrystalline silicon modules. This outstanding result of 17% efficiency demonstrates the capabilities of Solibro’s R&D resources in Germany and Sweden to follow the ambitious future efficiency roadmap and lays the foundation for the future success of Solibro.
July 7 , 2016 – Bitterfeld-Wolfen
Solibro’s world leading CIGS technology has surpassed the 16% efficiency mark for full-size panels. On July 7, a first 152W-module with 16.2% total-area efficiency has been produced in Solibro’s 120 MWp mass-production line in Germany. The efficiency of the 1.190 m x 0.795 m panel has been externally verified by TÜV Rheinland.
With power classes of up to 150W and a temperature coefficient of -0.32 %/K, Solibro thin-film modules reach the efficiency level of c-Si panels while offering their customers the yield advantage and aesthetics of the CIGS Technology.
