Konarka Technologies Inc. – developer of Konarka Power Plastic, a material that converts light to energy – has entered into an advanced product development agreement with Florida-based Arch Aluminum & Glass Co. Inc. The companies plan to collaborate on building integrated photovoltaics (BIPV), photovoltaic materials used to replace conventional building materials.
The memorandum of understanding outlines the integration of Konarka's patent-protected thin film solar material into glass for various commercial BIPV applications. BIPV is one of the fastest growing segments of the photovoltaic industry, Konarka says.
