CNBM’s CIGS provides cutting-edge solar performances:
- CIGS exhibits high conversion efficiencies, both in the laboratory and in production. This high efficiency, coupled with long-term stability, makes it uniquely positioned to play a central role in the global renewable energy sector. When its high performance is considered in conjunction with its other inherent advantages, CIGS is clearly a PV technology set to dominate fast-emerging PV market segments such as building-integrated photovoltaics (BIPV).
- Visually, CIGS is far superior to alternative solar technologies. This is true both in ‘standard’ module form, when its monolithic, all black appearance is most striking, as well as in colored or patterned modules.
- The environmental advantages of CIGS are unparalleled. It has an extremely low CO2 footprint and is a material suitable for high-value recycling.
