Ascent Solar Technologies Inc., a developer of thin-film photovoltaic modules, has entered into a definitive cooperation agreement with Icopal SAS of France to develop new building-integrated photovoltaic (BIPV) roofing products intended to be distributed by Icopal into the European marketplace.

Initially, Ascent Solar intends to supply Icopal with product from its existing 1.5 MW production line for the development, testing and certification of the BIPV products. The parties also envision demonstration scale projects to validate performance and develop market demand for the BIPV roofing products.

‘As an innovative company in flexible PV modules, Ascent Solar is a natural partner for Icopal for integration of Ascent's products into Icopal's flexible roofing membranes,’ says Bruno Fabvier of Icopal SAS.
