PV-Austria with flexible Photovoltaic
What actually became of all the architecturally sweeping roof solutions after the end of Unisolar? Here, new flexible roof solutions with crystalline photovoltaics from PV-Austria.
Unisolar was a sample of what would happen if you rest on your laurels. One had an interesting niche market, one tried always at the top end of the achievable prices to offer, one had only to sell 120 MW per year. underneath.
One did not invest in new larger production facilities. Then came the solar price revolution. At the moment is one of my standard sayings "From Audi BMW Mercedes Volkswagen may not be Blackberry Ericsson Kodak Nokia". If Unisolar had been more familiar, I could have taken it smoothly into this saying.
In recent years, the silicon cells have become ever thinner in order to save material. What is thinner, you can also bend more easily. This has enabled flexible modules made of crystalline silicon.
Which photovoltaic system is ideally suited to be tensioned with cableway technology over large areas? Here the inventor of this new technology on visit at the PV-Austria booth.
