Saint-Gobain Solar brings Avancis PowerMax Solar Module to North America
November 2, 2011 - Saint-Gobain Solar has introduced its Avancis PowerMax premium class photovoltaic (PV) modules, which combine Copper–Indium–Selenide (CIS) solar power technology with a sophisticated slim design to provide an ultra-efficient, cost-effective energy solution, it says. According to the company, Avancis’ pioneering use of CIS technology incorporates thin layers (less than one micron) deposited on glass substrate, enabling the highest electricity conversion efficiency for thin film solar modules — particularly in low light. This allows the system to deliver significant energy savings and reduce the carbon emissions of buildings, it adds.
