Thin Film Photovoltaic Membranes
Thin Film Solar PV technologies reduce the amount of material required in creating a solar cell. Although this reduces material cost, it may also reduce energy conversion efficiency. Thin film silicon cells have become popular due to cost, flexibility, lighter weight and ease of integration
An interesting aspect of Thin Film Solar PV is the possibility to deposit the cells on a variety of building materials, including flexible materials like waterproof roof covering membranes.
These sheets are constructed from extremely robust amorphous silicon thin film panels that can be bonded to a variety of building construction panels.
They have been designed and already fitted to metal profile standing-seam roofing sheets.
As you can see below the lightweight units are suitable for a wide variety of roof shapes, giving architects and engineers maximum freedom of design.
The use of renewable energy should not be underestimated in the years to come, because with technology moving forward at a pace, along with falling manufacturing costs, there is no reason not install solar energy systems on either new builds or existing roof areas.
