Odersun AG designs and manufactures customized solar products using a proprietary, worldwide patented thin-film technology (CIS – copper indium disulphide). Its manufacturing process enables the company to produce solar cells that can be assembled into solar modules of virtually any size, form, design or any power, in flexible glass-foil or glass-glass packaging. This adaptability is decisive for applications of building integrated photovoltaics (BiPV).

The company employs over 260 employees at its facilities in Germany and is backed by an international group of leading investors including Doughty Hanson Technology Ventures (UK), Virgin Green Fund (USA/UK), Advanced Technology & Materials (China), PCG Clean Energy & Technology Fund (USA), AGF Private Equity (a member of Allianz Group, France) and Valor KG (Austria).
