New technology concentrates light into solar cell for an energy boost

Finnish technology company ICS has developed a film solution that concentrates light into a solar cell to increase the power output from a solar panel.

The Solar Energy Optics (SEO) film solution captures and very precisely redirects light beams, explained Kari Rinko, Chief Technology Officer at ICS.

“Our SEO film technology is based on embedded cavity optics, which is not exposed to external influences or contamination and therefore lasts as long as the solar panel itself. The SEO film is as effective as if the optics would be mounted on the whole surface of the solar panel,” said Rinko.

ICS uses an ultra-thin film produced in a roll-to-roll process which makes the technology scalable and ready for seamless adoption on a global scale.

“This unique technology platform determines and enables the new sustainable energy goals for the whole photovoltaic industry,” said Rinko.
