[RenewableEnergyAccess.com] United Solar Ovonic has signed a multi-year agreement with Biohaus PV Handels GmbH for sale of up to 9.6 MW of photovoltaic (PV) laminates. Biohaus will incorporate the Uni-Solar BIPV laminates with its proprietary panel design to address Germany’s expanding grid-connected PV market. Founded in 1985 as an installation company of thermal collectors, Biohaus is among German pioneer companies in the solar sector. In the 1990’s, Biohaus integrated PV applications into its portfolio and became a well-known wholesaler of PV in Germany specializing in BIPV. In 2002, Biohaus developed the world’s biggest solar roof tile and the corresponding installation system. Lightweight, flexible thin-film solar is not the most common form of solar PV but it’s particularly well-suited to building integrated applications. Germany’s generous feed-in tariffs have also helped accelerate solar deployments in the country.
