Organic Photovoltaics – Truly Green Energy: Ultra-Low Carbon Footprint

The global warming effect is unequivocal, and solar energy will play a major role in the most important battle of the 21st century: enabling increased energy consumption while minimizing the impact on our environment. In order to achieve the climate protection targets as soon as possible, the environmental impacts must be quantified and should be effectively integrated into the competitive process. TÜV Rheinland (Germany) has certified the environmental impact of the solar film HeliaSol® to be below 16 kg CO2e/m² through a Life Cycle Assessment (LCA). The result is an ultra-low carbon footprint ranging from 15 up to 3 g CO2e/kWh depending on the solar irradiation of a location.
Through the continuous increase of the solar cell efficiency, Heliatek will bring the carbon footprint of their solar films even further down to reach the lowest carbon footprint among all energy sources. This makes it a truly green product!
The OPV pioneer is currently installing its series production line for the manufac-turing of their unique organic solar films. The line is in the ramp-up phase and will produce organic solar films with an annual capacity of up to 1 million m² from 2020.
