The dynamism of Schott Solar GmbH is gaining popularity as many solar product manufacturers use the company's thin-film technology. Schott delivers its products to solar companies as it strengthens its market position. Recently, the company signed contracts involving long-term partnerships with Iqua, a Finnish manufacturer of mobile accessories, as well as with ICP Solar Technologies and Premier Solar Systems in India.

The high quality and flexibility of the cells of Schott are most favored by many companies. They said its extremely thin and light solar cells feature high-power density and can be shaped according to the needs of the application. The cells are flexible and can generate different voltages and currents. They accomplish both indoor and outdoor uses in mobile or stationary solar power plant installations.

Practical collaboration
Premier Solar, an Indian firm, employs Schott's ASI OEM thin-film cells when operating off-grid water pumps, streetlights and room lights. Products from ICP Solar offer solar power widely used in mobile phones, on boats, in remote areas and in farming. The Canadian manufacturer is also able to produce substantially lighter, more durable solar power devices that provide 25 percent higher output with Schott's solar cells. The Finnish company Iqua uses solar cells to manufacture the world's very first solar-driven headsets and hands-free car kits for the consumer market. Gardena, a gardening tool company based in Ulm, Germany, also uses Schott's solar cells. Gardena takes in thin-film cells to work on its solar-driven pumps for ponds and watering computers.

Future endeavors
Schott continues to cater to a long-term supply agreements with worldwide solar firms. The thin-film technology provides flexible and a wide range of applications ensuring high product quality and performance, and securing power supply far from the grid. Schott gains access to the large market that modern solar technology solutions have to offer.
