Haven't heard too much about this Indian partnership that's on ASTI's website.
From the Kirloskar website: '“Within the grid-connect segment, our technology partnerships and collaborations enable us to offer the cheapest and most highly efficient solar power plant solutions. We aim to offer technologies that can reach parity with the grid by 2014. Currently, we offer crystalline silicon, amorphous silicon, thin-film CIGS and concentrated photovoltaic technologies.”
Within the off-grid segment, we offer a range of products and solutions. Selected products include solar USB chargers and Solar PV Blankets for larger scale applications. Future products will include a solar lantern, among others. Our exclusive partnership with USA-based Ascent Solar makes us the only company able to offer Ascent’s flexible thin-film CIGS panels in India. These unique panels are incredibly light and incredibly resilient – there is nothing quite like them available in the markets today.'
