Smart large lightweight long life Multifunctional PV Module Technology for large Power Installations and Distributed Energy Generation

Objective

SuMMiT brings value to Europe by demonstration of large lightweight PV modules with record power output, lowest installation cost, lowest PV system cost and lowest carbon footprint in a secure way, i.e. certified performance, quality and durability, protected by patents and proprietary knowhow.

SuMMiT combines and demonstrates three step-change innovations: 1. COSMOS PV module design, i.e. a large lightweight hybrid subassembly structure; 2.Highly efficient, long-lasting, top quality, single glass PV laminate; 3.Smart module power management.

The demonstration is twofold. The manufacturability of the novel PV module concept will be demonstrated as well as simplicity of installation and utilization, applicability, performance and durability in 5 to 6 field demonstrations.

The consortium brings together the required critical mass in polymer technology and polymer processing, encapsulant technology, smart electronics, world class high performance PV module technology and production capacity as well as one of the Europe’s leading turn-key PV system installation companies with subsidiaries all over the world.
