Solar Energy - Pilkington

Glass for maximising solar energy conversion. Solar Glass for Solar Panels The NSG Group offers a range of specialised glass and coated glass products used in all of the leading solar energy technologies, including thin film photovoltaics, crystalline silicon photovoltaics, concentrated solar power technology and solar thermal collectors.

Applications for Pilkington Optiwhite for Solar applications

Crystalline silicon photovoltaics is the most widely used photovoltaic technology. Crystalline silicon photovoltaics are modules built using crystalline silicon solar cells (c-Si), developed from the microelectronics technology industry.

NSG TEC™ for Solar Applications - Pilkington

Used in Thin Film Photovoltaics, NSG TEC™ is a range of coated glass designed and optimised for each of the main thin film photovoltaic technologies, including amorphous silicon (a-Si), tandem (a-Si/μ/Si), cadmium telluride (CdTe), copper indium (gallium) diselenide (CIS, CIGS) and dye-sensitised solar cells (DSSC).
