As a top 100 startups in Swiss, Insolight has been awarded 10.6 million euros by the European Union to its HIPERION project. The primary aim of HIPERION is to scale up the production of Insolight’s technology by showing solar panel manufacturers how they can adapt their existing production lines. “In addition to developing a pilot assembly line, we will also further demonstrate the performance and reliability of our innovation through qualification tests and several commercial pilot sites across Europe,” says Laurent Coulot, the startup’s CEO.
Insolight has used a planar optical micro-tracking process that concentrates sunlight on multi-junction solar cells mounted on top of a conventional silicon backplane. Insolight’s solar panels are highly efficient under direct sunlight and can harvest energy under cloudy conditions as well, which is not the case for standard concentration systems.
Insolight has achieved a major breakthrough in the efficiency of power conversion, 29%, which is well above the efficiency of standard solar panels, 18%-22%.
