Industry Guide Solar


High performance in solar production

The most important basis for an efficient and affordable energy production through sunlight is solar production technology. There is no other area where research and development are so greatly advanced in order to utilise the potential through technology developments for efficiency improvements and cost reductions even better. The focus is the goal to realise highly efficient solar cells with an effectiveness of up to 25%. Glasstec presents innovative solar production technologies, machines and systems, as well as components and materials for solar production. In addition, it directs attention to pioneering applications such as building-integrated photovoltaics (BIPV) which increasingly come into focus in the context of achieving climate goals. The intersection of glass and solar is unique in this form.
