Temperature Performance of Thin-Film PV

One of the advantages of thin-film PV is the superior high-temperature performance, which results in higher efficiency compared to standard crystalline wafer-based silicon PV. For all solar cells, the efficiency begins to drop once the panel temperature exceeds 25oC...

Why We’re Running a StartEngine and Social Media Campaign

PI Energy is developing a new solar photovoltaic (PV) technology to open up new markets for solar energy. Most current PV is installed on solar farms or some type of weight-bearing roof. Our PV materials are designed to be wrapped around any surface, making previously...

What is the environmental impact of PI Energy’s technology?

We have been asked, what is the environmental impact of PI Energy technology? We have discussed how the technology will enable globally scalable PV.  But what do we mean by globally scalable?  Globally scalable for us means not only low cost and earth abundant...

PI Energy’s Technology Evolution:

PI Energy has fabricated and tested over 2,000 small-scale prototypes across four generation of PV materials, each one building upon the innovation of the prior generation.  This development path requires not only being able to meet commercially competitive PV...
