Insolight is developing very high efficiency solar modules that produce almost twice more electricity per area than conventional panels. The startup is based in Lausanne, Switzerland. It was founded in 2015 by Laurent Coulot, Florian Gerlich and Mathieu Ackermann, three EPFL alumni passionated by solar energy and technology.

Offer

Solar panel with double efficiency

Description
Insolight is building solar panels with 36% efficiency to make solar energy more affordable.

The innovative technology, called planar optical microtracking, allows to concentrate sunlight in a standard flat panel frame. Only micro solar cells are required, which makes affordable the use of the most efficient technologies, used only on satellites. The solution therefore combines high efficiency (35%) with ease of mounting on rooftops.
