Tessera® is a new Si PV module concept especially developed to improve the integratability of PV. Tessera enables freedom of module size, shape and form and moreover has a high shadow tolerance. Where standard PV systems have a significantly reduced output under partial shading conditions, a shadow of 10% on a module can decrease the output by 30%, the dedicated electrical interconnection of cells in the Tessera® concept gives an almost linear response under shading.
