CIGS technology: Past – Present – Future

Manz works with the industry’s largest team of CIGS technology experts to transition the research results of its exclusive development partner — the Center for Solar Energy and Hydrogen Research at Baden-Württemberg (ZSW) — into mass production. With 21.7 % effectiveness on a laboratory cell, the ZSW holds the world record for effectiveness over all thin-film solar technologies.

This will advance Manz’s CIGS research and development as quickly as possible. With a current world record efficiency of up to 16 % of CIGSfab and a reliable technology roadmap for future increases of efficiency, Manz guarantees its customers maximum investment security. Today and in the future.
