New applications are being developed for power harvesting with lightweight solar products and application-specific shapes, e.g. for building integrated photovoltaics (BIPV), a wide range of specific mobile electronics or public transport systems. Flexible solar products can either feed the solar energy they produced to a public energy grid as “on-grid” or application or serve as an “off-grid” application where the solar energy is stored and supplied to various energy consumers such as mobile devices or private energy houses. The easy installation capability of lightweight flexible solar panels and the various “off-grid” product possibilities are useful examples to illustrate the potential of the flexible solar market, which is still in its early phase of commercialization.
Mühlbauer provides a reel-to-reel production equipment solution for the full range of all back-end processes.
Our innovative and unique automation technology enables a conversion of thin film materials or organic solar materials, like
to flexible solar panels or any other flexible solar product.
