“IconIQ” solar module, based on a technology developed by TNO (NL) and ISC Konstanz (DE), has been revealed by Dutch module producer Energyra. The solar panel entails a unique combination of two European technologies, which will also be produced in the EU. At Energyra’s factory in Zaandam, the Netherlands, a first prototype was presented to Gaëtan Masson, co-chairman of the European Solar Manufacturing Council (ESMC).
These are the first steps of the IconIQ-Greenfab consortium, which is aiming to establish a high-end PV manufacturing activity in Europe. Energyra, ISC Konstanz and TNO play a leading role in this consortium, focusing on combining proven technologies into a high-quality mass product. This aligns very well with the objectives of ESMC, which represents all the stakeholders in the European PV manufacturing industry.
