Ascent Solar Technologies, a developer of flexible thin-film solar modules, has said that Czech Republic-based solar integrator Votum will begin distribution of Ascent Solar’s lightweight, flexible, high power thin-film CIGS modules for building integrated (BIPV), building applied (BAPV) and portable power solutions in the Czech Republic.

The company said that the agreement with Votum gives Ascent Solar access to multiple market segments in the Czech Republic’s solar market.

Ascent Solar president and CEO Farhad Moghadam said that this agreement will give the company access to a rapidly growing market for BIPV and BAPV applications in the Czech Republic.

We also expect that other products in our lineup of flexible, lightweight CIGS modules will be marketed through this relationship," Moghadam said.
