Midsummer launches Power Mesh Technology - increased power and discreet appearance

Swedish solar technology leader Midsummer launches Power Mesh Technology – a technology that increases the power of the solar cells and gives the final products a more discreet look, while retaining previous benefits such as flexibility, sustainable production process and class leading weight characteristics.

’’Our unique selling point has always been the appearance of our solar panels and we constantly strive for our customers not to have to compromise between elegance and efficiency”, said Sven Lindström, CEO, Midsummer. “Now that they are becoming even more visually invisible as well as more effective, it feels very promising. We believe and hope that this will create an even greater interest in our products.”

The new Power Mesh Technology consists of a dense array of wires for current collection instead of the regular ribbons, which
leads to less resistive loss in the solar panels. The PMT-solar panels have a larger active area and less shading, resulting in higher current. With the introduction of this technology, Midsummer can increase the average module power by up to 10%.

An important part of Midsummer's daily work is to conduct extensive research and product development. The research team works primarily on improvements in the efficiency of solar cells and the development of new types of thin and building-integrated solar panels.

About Midsummer
Midsummer is a leading developer and supplier of advanced solar energy technology solutions for the production and installation of thin film solar panels. Its business offering includes equipment for cost-effective manufacturing of thin film solar cells as well as building-integrated photovoltaic (BIPV) solutions. Midsummer’s production process for thin film solar cells has a minimal carbon footprint compared to other production processes for solar modules. Midsummer’s DUO system has taken the position as the most widespread manufacturing tool for flexible CIGS solar cells in the world.

Midsummer develops and markets solar panels directly to end customers from its own production and via contract manufacturers. The Midsummer Solar Roofs product range Midsummer SLIM, Midsummer WAVE and Midsummer BOLD offers customers light, thin and flexible solar panels that result in attractive solar roofs.

Midsummer’s technology is based on a rapid process for the production of durable, flexible CIGS solar cells using sputtering of all layers of the solar cell in a sealed vacuum chain. The Company’s share (MIDS) is traded on Nasdaq First North Premier Growth Market with G & W Fondkommission as Certified Adviser, phone: +46 (0)8-503 000 50, email:
