CIGS Manufacturers Prepare to Scale Operations | Walter I Baltzley

As predicted, solar technologies continue to advance at a rapid rate.  Recently CIGS hit a new efficiency level of 16%, and now two major manufacturers–Stion, and Siva Power–have acquired funding to scale up production.  The low cost of manufacturing CIGS combined with these new efficiencies and a flexible form factor promise to shake up the solar industry, and it looks like it will begin in the second half of this year.
