This year, the focus will be on AGC's new glass offer for glass/glass or lightweight PV panels, and also high performance ETFE film for front and back sheets.
Glass empowering Solar Efficiency of PV panels
Keen to continue "Empowering Solar Efficiency", AGC Solar will showcase DragontrailTM, a brand new glass solution for lightweight PV modules. DragontrailTM is an exceptionally strong and highly scratch-resistant chemically tempered glass allowing for thinner PV cover (typically 2mm or less). It is the solution for glass/glass or lightweight PV panels. For photovoltaic crystalline, Solite Plus extra-clear patterned cover glass with SPARC anti-reflective coating will be on display. This coating offers high solar transmission which allows an increase in the energy output of the PV panels by up to 5%, which is equivalent to gaining two extra weeks of sun each year.
For photovoltaic thin film (silicon and CdTe), AGC will showcase its TCO (Transparent Conductive Oxide) coated glass line which has been designed to meet the wide range of customer requirements in terms of performance and dimensions. For Building Integrated Photovoltaics (BIPV), visitors will see SunEwat, the crystalline Si modules for facade and roof applications. They are custom-built in terms of dimension, design and number of cells required to ensure their perfect integration into each architectural project.
