Solar power tent prototype at CES!

ICP Solar Technologies will present a solar power tent at International CES

MONTREAL, Canada - Focused on developing state-of-the-art innovative solar power technology products, ICP Solar Technologies is presenting a solar power tent prototype at 2004 International CES.


The ICP Global Solar division is integrating ICP's flexible thin-film photovoltaic technologies (CIGS) into a Coleman® Exponent® tent. This unit will allow its user to connect and charge their portable electrical and digital devices in one convenient and fully integrated package. Strategically mounted CIGS panels are pre-wired, providing solar power to individual devices for power storage (charging) or immediate consumption.

"This solar power tent is an exciting example of our extraordinary commercial potential of ICP's exclusive flexible solar technology," said Sass M. Peress, President and CEO of ICP Solar Technologies Inc.

ICP Global Solar CIGS technology is a high efficiency, ultra lightweight personal solar power solution that has proved itself in numerous applications, ranging from marine to desert environments. It is a highly durable and self-repairing solar technology, ideally suited for mobile applications. Combined with integrated charge control and optional battery/charger systems, it provides the conveniences of back-up and always on, on-demand small scale solar electrical power.

The product will be presented at the ICP booth located at booth # 21704 SO 3&4.

Kipp & Zonen - DustIQ the novel soiling monitoring solution for solar panels

Soiling of the panel glass is one of the major problems in the rapidly expanding solar energy market, with the attendant loss of efficiency and reduction in performance ratios. Now, there's a new, simple and very cost-effective alternative. Based on Kipp & Zonen's unique Optical Soiling Measurement (OSM) technology, DustIQ can be easily added to new or existing solar arrays and integrated into plant management systems. The unit is mounted to the frame of a PV panel and does not need sunlight to operate. It continuously measures the transmission loss through glass caused by soiling, so that the reduction in light reaching the solar cells can be calculated.
