Winchester, UK - Flexible thin-film photovoltaic module developer, Ascent Solar Technologies, Inc., has introduced its FlexPower line of products, which includes Light, Mobile and Extreme, that claims to carry an industry leading power to weight ratio.
The modules have been developed to achieve the highest power density of any flexible product currently available in the market and provide a novel form-fit capability.
FlexPower Light modules are manufactured for the Building Integrated Photovoltaic (BIPV) market. The FlexPower Light line features a 5 m long product that delivers 123-W and claims to be the world's largest monolithically interconnected flexible module. Manufacturers of building materials and BIPV systems can now utilize the nature of the FlexPower Light class for large area BIPV installations and seamless integration into building surfaces.
FlexPower Mobile is designed for the Electronic Integrated Photovoltaic (EIPV) market. The modules are optimized for 12-volt battery charging applications, provide seamless integration into consumer electronics and are available encapsulated or un-encapsulated as a build to suit solution.
FlexPower Extreme for Defense is a durable and deployable photovoltaic solution for Defense applications. The Extreme class of modules is designed to provide high power density and match existing battery recharging ecosystems allowing for more supply line independence.
