DAS Energy: DAS Energy won the MESIA Solar Award 2017

The DAS Energy flexible photovoltaic modules were recognized as the most innovative technology at the WFES in Abu Dhabi. In the context of the World Future Energy Summit 2017 in Abu Dhabi, the Austrian company DAS Energy was awarded the "Most Innovative Technology on Display at Solar Expo 2017" on January 2017. The independent jury was impressed by the flexibility, the low weight and the wide range of possible applications.

The year 2017 has marked another award for innovation and entrepreneurship for the Austrian company DAS Energy. The company was already awarded the Austrian Solar Prize in 2016. On 18 January, the Solar Award was presented by the Middle East Solar Industry Association (MESIA) to DAS Energy in the "Most Innovative Technology on Display at Solar Expo 2017" category. "This award is a premiere," says Managing Director and partner Michael Oberdorfer, "we are the first Austrian company to be awarded this award." For the fourth time, the MESIA Solar Award offers a platform for products with an outstanding inventor spirit and services for the Solar market in the MENA region.

Technologies in photovoltaics
"We have taken a step closer to our vision of integrating solar technology into architecture on the one hand and, on the other hand, to bring electricity where it is missing. The jury was also very enthusiastic, "reports CEO and partner Christian Dries.

DAS Energy combines the technologies of photovoltaics based on crystalline silicon solar cells and glass fiber materials from the aircraft industry and is therefore specialized in the production of glassless, flexible, stable and ultramodern photovoltaic modules. Due to the ease and flexibility of the modules, the application leaves no customer wishes unfulfilled.
