HANERGY AND THIN FILM
Hanergy is one of the largest solar manufacturers in the world, specialised in thin film. It has attached great importance to investing in thin-film solar cell research. Six R&D centers have been established by Hanergy in Beijing, Sichuan, Silicone Valley of the US, and Uppsala, Sweden.
So far, Hanergy has applied for almost 1000 patents in new energy, out of which 60% are invention patents (including core patents from the acquired overseas companies). It has also been the chief developer or involved in the development of more than 10 national and industry standards on photovoltaics.
Our thin film modules have 3 important advantages over crystaline to give you extra yield:
- light soaking effect
- temperature coefficient
Through global technical integration and independent innovation, Hanergy has become a world leader in thin-film solar technology. The maximum research conversion efficiency of its copper indium gallium selenide (CIGS) technology has reached 21%, as certified by Germany’s Fraunhofer Institute for Solar Energy Systems (ISE), and its gallium arsenide (GaAs) technology’s research conversion efficiency has reached 30.8% -- the world record for the highest conversion efficiency of thin-film solar technology, as certified by the U.S.’s National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL).
Thin-film solar technology enables cutting-edge features such as flexibility, light weight, superior low light performance, and diversified color and shapes. These unique qualities make it adaptable to a wide range of applications, including Building Integrated Photovoltaics (BIPV), residential power, agricultural applications, automobile power, electronics, consumer and specialty products, as well as commercial unmanned aerial vehicles.
