Heliatek (Germany)

Thin, light, flexible – the future of solar technology is organic photovoltaics. Organic photovoltaics offer nearly limitless possibilities thanks to its extraordinary properties. Based in Dresden, Heliatek is the global leader in organic photovoltaic technology utilizing small molecules. The light-weight and flexible next generation solar films provide clean solar energy wherever it's needed. Environmentally friendly, simple, versatile. Patented tandem technology enables the solar cells to absorb a very broad spectrum of light as well as deliver superior performance in low light conditions. Even rising temperatures have no effect on the performance of the organic solar cells from Heliatek.

Heliatek's transparent solar films could be integrated between the glass sheets of double glazed windows. These windows would look like tinted glass as the unique vapor deposition technology for the solar films allows for a homogeneous coating of the solar layer without any distracting patterns or irregularities.
