Dow Building Solutions has invited Global Solar Energy to participate in its U.S. Department of Energy Solar America Initiative (SAI) project to help create innovative building-integrated photovoltaic (BIPV) products. As a part of its SAI program, Dow is creating a flexible solar roof shingle and has made Global Solar a key team member in its development.

‘We are collaborating with Global Solar Energy because, throughout our search for a solar material provider, it was the only company able to supply a qualifying flexible copper indium gallium diselenide (CIGS) material that meets our needs and the requirements of the SAI,’ says Bob Cleereman, senior director of solar and structural technology with Dow Building Solutions.

‘Based on its years of experience, Global Solar will be an intrinsically valuable team member in advancing our BIPV product development and meeting the demand for new solar energy applications,’ adds Patricia Nugent, program manager for Dow Building Solutions.
