Increased Demand for European Solar Modules.
“The French government made a low carbon footprint an essential evaluation criterion for solar projects of between 100 and 250 kWp. Environmentally friendly modules are much more likely to be selected during the evaluation process – especially as companies are now scarcely able to use price to stand out from their competitors due to a tightening market environment,” reports Dr. Thomas Hillig, Vice President Module Sales & Marketing at Innotech Solar.
This has increased demand for our solar modules. Thanks to our particularly green production process, the carbon footprint of Innotech Solar modules is around 70 percent lower than that of modules using conventional cells.
The Dutch test institute SmartGreenScans, which specializes in the life cycle analysis of photovoltaic systems, has certified the excellent carbon footprint of Innotech Solar modules, an achievement that has been made possible by the company’s environmentally friendly manufacturing process. Innotech Solar optimizes solar cells from other manufacturers before using them to produce its own modules. After only about four months of generating solar power, these modules save quantities of CO2 equaling those required to manufacture them. In addition to the innovative production process, the use of renewable energy at the company’s manufacturing sites in Sweden and Germany, as well as the short transport routes, improve the company’s carbon footprint.
A multitude of tests by independent experts, such as the Fraunhofer Institute, Photovoltaik-Institut Berlin and PV Lab, have demonstrated the high performance, durability and positive environmental impact of Innotech Solar modules.

About Innotech Solar
The Scandinavian-German company manufactures solar modules in Europe and sells them worldwide. Innotech Solar specializes in the production of particularly environmentally friendly modules with optimized solar cells and uses innovative processes developed by in-house research teams to do so.
Innotech Solar optimizes solar cells in Halle an der Saale, Germany, and manufactures its modules in a former REC solar factory in Glava, Sweden, which thanks to its fully automated production lines is one of Europe’s most modern manufacturing plants. The production process is powered at both sites using 100 percent renewable energy.
