Global Solar has developed a proprietary process for manufacturing thin-film Copper Indium Gallium diSelenide (CIGS) photovoltaic (PV) modules. Unlike traditional solar panels that are rigid, heavy and fragile, Global Solar’s thin-film solar modules are lightweight, flexible and durable. While other companies produce CIGS on glass, Global Solar is the only company with CIGS on flexible materials.
CIGS create more electricity from the same amount of sunlight than does other thin-film PV and therefore has ahigher “conversion efficiency”. CIGS conversion efficiency is also very stable over time, meaning its performance continues unabated for many years. The performance of many other PV materials can rapidly decline with use.
Global Solar thin-film photovoltaic technology is perfect for charging many consumer products. This technology allows to have a lightweight, foldable and durable power source away from home.
Global Solar also offers consumer products that are great for campers, hikers or anyone who spends extended time outdoors. Partnerships with clothing companies like Scottevest resulted into one of the first Wearable Electronic products that make use of solar engergy harvesting.
