Ascent signs China distribution agreement for integration of CIGS PV modules into Radiant's metal roofing and façade systems

Ascent Solar Technologies Inc of Thornton, CO, USA says that Radiant Holding Ltd will begin distribution of its lightweight, flexible thin-film copper indium gallium diselenide (CIGS) solar modules for building-integrated photovoltaic (BIPV), automotive and portable power solutions in China.

Ascent says that the agreement gives it access to multiple market segments in China‘s emerging solar market, including direct integration into Radiant‘s line of building materials for residential and commercial solutions. Radiant plans to install Ascent modules on its metal roofing demonstration site immediately in order to show the unique characteristics of the flexible, lightweight CIGS modules to its customers.

“This relationship will give us access to a very large and rapidly growing market for BIPV applications in China,“ reckons Ascent‘s president & CEO Farhad Moghadam. “We also expect that other products in our lineup of flexible, lightweight CIGS modules will be marketed through this relationship,“ he adds. “Radiant has a sound building materials business and is an excellent partner to have for distribution of our products in China.“
