MiaSolé Sets Efficiency Record for Solar on Flexible Substrate, Plus Recent PV Highs: We've been keeping a tal...

We've been keeping a tally of recent record-setting solar cell and module achievements. We're now adding MiaSolé's 15.5 percent efficiency mark for a flexible CIGS solar cell. Note that this is an aperture-area efficiency on a commercial-size flexible PV module with a total area of 1.68 square meters. That eclipses the 13.4 percent mark recently set by SoloPower . MiaSolé is targeting commercial deliveries of 14-percent-efficient glass modules by the end of the year. MiaSolé placed third in CIGS panel production in 2011, behind Solar Frontier (at 400 megawatts) and Solibro (at 66 megawatts), according to GTM Research. The firm also recently announced a 17.3-percent-efficient champion device, while the "manufacturing process for 14 percent efficiency is now in production." The firm recently made a rare presentation in Palo Alto, California to the Silicon Valley IEEE PV Chap...
