For a number of PV applications standard modules are not suitable as they do not provide the required functionalities. We develop customizable module designs to meet specific requirements and create tailored product solutions. Prototypes are manufactured on industrial production equipment in the Module-TEC and qualified in the CalLab PV Modules as well as reliability tested in the TestLab PV Modules. We provide technological solutions for

  • building integration (BIPV)
  • device integration
  • vehicle integration
  • road integration
  • novel module designs
  • manufacturing options for new module types
  • material selection for customized solutions
  • prototyping of modules
  • FEM mechanisch und elektrisch

For many applications, the integration of PV is today economically feasible and technically possible. Before starting R+D activities the technical options need to be evaluated and evaluated economically. We offer technology studies where we address the specific questions of our customers and show potential development strategies.
