Shaping the future of energy provision together: solar energy with CIS photovoltaics

Thanks to strong partners, we have made CIS technology competitive in a very short time and are working tirelessly to make our innovative solar modules even more cost-effective and powerful.

Saint-Gobain – glass expertise

The manufacture of our CIS solar modules benefits from the resources of our parent company, Saint-Gobain, one of the world's leading providers of construction and automotive glass. The coating and heat treatment of glass are two of Saint-Gobain's core skills, and the company has longstanding know-how in these fields – with the advantage of invaluable synergies on a dynamically growing photovoltaic market.

In June 2010, Saint-Gobain announced the building of a third plant for high-efficiency CIS photovoltaic modules in Korea together with Hyundai Heavy Industries Co. Ltd. (HHI). The partnership is to take the form of a joint venture under the name of Hyundai Avancis, with both parties equally represented.
