TotalEnergies is offering an innovative solution to solarize limited mechanical load buildings or structures. The technology 3 to 5 times lighter than conventionnal photovoltaic systems is also flexible and robust, with lifetime equivalent to usual solar panels. It is certified according PV market standards.
The Leaf technology is based on standard crystalline silicon photovoltaic cells, and so taking benefits of high efficiency, availability and continous price down. The innovation is based on the innovative encapsulation and lamination in composite materials allows mechanical strengt, low weight and long lifetime. A set of patents treat several product structure and details or industrial processes permitting a coherent and robust solution.
Several demonstrators has been successfully deployed in different world locations since 2016.
