Heliatek wins Renewable Energy Design Award 2015
At the Elektra Electronics Industry Awards ceremony in London, Heliatek has received the Renewable Energy Design Award 2015. The German start-up, based in Dresden and Ulm, develops and produces HeliaFilm, an organic solar film. The ceremony took place at the Lancaster London Hotel on 24 November 2015.
The prize recognises the international success of Heliatek as a clean energy producing film supplier. “We are delighted to receive this award. It supports our vision of a decentralised and decarbonised energy supply. It also encourages us to continue to enhance our HeliaFilm technology as a clean and green source of energy,” commented Thibaud Le Séguillon, CEO of Heliatek.
The organisers commented that Heliatek’s technology had achieved a record of 12% efficiency for organic photovoltaics and is now being commercialised for large area applications. The judges also applauded the company for partnering with industrial glass and building materials companies to speed the adoption of its technology in sustainable, net-zero energy buildings, which included glass installations in the Belgium pavilion at Expo Milano 2015.
