February 2018 – Thalheim
With an efficiency of 17.52 % on a total area of 1,190 mm x 789.5 mm Solibro can once again leave its competitors behind and set a new world record for CIGS solar panels! Last year´s record could be increased from 159.6 Wp to 164.7 Wp and shows the impressive success that could only be reached with a very close cooperation between the sister companies Solibro Hi-Tech GmbH, Solibro Research AB and Solibro GmbH and the commitment of all employees. The world record was already verified by TÜV Rheinland in Cologne.
January 2018 – Abu Dhabi
From January 15 to 18 Solibro has successfully presented its products to interested visitors at the World Future Energy Summit in Abu Dhabi and could convince the audience of their pioneering solar panels “Made in Germany”. The election to one of the “Innovative products showcased” [ https://www.worldfutureenergysummit.com ] underlines the positive feedback of the customers and strengthens the market entry in this important PV market.
With the second participation at this event besides 2017 Solibro not only presented its standard product – the SL2 solar module with efficiencies up to 16.5% - but also exhibited 2 module prototypes and its Slide-In mounting system that attracted wide interest among the visitors. Solibro GmbH is very thankful for inspiring conversations and discussions that will be the basis for promising projects.
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.
