Heliatek awarded by World Economic Forum
Heliatek GmbH, the Dresden-based company that produces ultra-light, flexible and less than 1mm thick photovoltaic solar films, was awarded as one of the World Economic Forum’s “technology pioneers”, a selection of the world’s most innovative companies.
Heliatek was chosen by a professional jury among hundreds of candidates as one of the 49 selected companies and was the only German company to do so. Thanks to its selection, it will have access to the most influential and sought-after business and political network in the world, and be invited to the World Economic Forum’s “Summer Davos” in Dalian, China, this September, as well as the annual meeting in Davos in January.
Thibaud Le Séguillon, CEO at Heliatek, remarks: “We are delighted to be recognised by the World Economic Forum as a technology pioneer. We have developed ground breaking technology and a manufacturing process that will have a significant impact on the way energy is produced. By integrating our solar films to building facades, we turn these into localised power stations.”
