Germany’s Fraunhofer ISE has made a modest, 70 panel installation of new crystalline PV cell and module technologies produced by the institute on the outside of one of its laboratories. The institute, which researches solar energy and related clean energy technologies including battery-based energy storage and hydrogen fuel cell vehicles, announced yesterday that it has completed the test project, which started back in 2013 when the lab was inaugurated. The institute claims the new cells and modules are lower cost than comparable technology, and said the installation shows that by the addition of the thermoplastic material TPS, they can be adapted for building facades. Fraunhofer has dubbed the new module 'TPedge'. It integrates back-contacted cells made with the institute’s patented ...
