From PV giant to organic photovoltaic technology with OPVIUS 

2012 — 2019

From the very start, HOCH.REIN has been instrumental in making solar power a marketable alternative to fossil fuels. So why not also produce electricity directly where it is needed and adapted to aesthetic requirements? BELECTRIC was the first to develop organic photovoltaics (OPV). OPV works on the basis of printed, freely formable, lightweight and highly flexible photovoltaic films that can be integrated in design products and architecture, e.g. in glass facades. 

2015: Com­ple­tion of the largest build­ing-inte­grat­ed OPV sys­tem in the world, for the African Union.
2017: Win­ner of the Zum­to­bel Group Award — OPVIUS receives award in the “Applied Inno­va­tions” cat­e­go­ry
2018: Instal­la­tion of the world’s first ener­gy-active ETFE façade with print­ed OPV in Darm­stadt, Ger­many.
2020: Win­ner of the Ger­man Sus­tain­abil­i­ty Award in the “Cli­mate” category

Today, OPVIUS (ASCA GmbH) is part of the French group ARMOR.
The bundling of know-how will make ASCA a glob­al bench­mark com­pa­ny in the tech­nol­o­gy OPV field.

Restructuring at its best –
