Renewable energy especially by photovoltaics globally is on the rise. But do we have enough space to power a sustainable future? Building integrated photovoltaics (BIPV) hold a promising future to solve this issue. But up to date there is no solution which fulfills all needs for building integration of solar modules. With ColorQuant we offer a solution that brings customized coloring of solar modules with bright colors applied by an industrial ceramic screen printing process on glass. At the same time the efficiency loss is low, like it typically is with dielectric layers, maintaining the efficiency of colored modules as high as 95%. ColorQuant combines the advantage of the existing solutions for coloring and hiding solar modules resulting in the best cost/performance ratio enabling a new area of solar module installations not being feasible before.
ColorQuant – customized, bright colored solar modules with 95% efficiency enabling a colorful, sustainable future

About the speaker:
I have been working in the flat glass sector since 1998, with a focus on ceramic colors for glass. Started as a development engineer at Degussa, followed by interesting years in application technology. Then head of product management at Ferro GmbH in Frankfurt. Since 2009 I have been the managing partner of Ceramic Colors Wolbring GmbH in Germany. The direct contact to development, application technology and production in combination with interesting sales tasks is very important to me. In order to correctly identify the needs of our customers in changing markets, a personal exchange is particularly important to me.
