A flexible approach to offshore solar
Researchers in the Netherlands are trialing a floating solar installation based on flexible thin-film PV components. The suggestion behind their principle is that such modules, in combination with a recently made flexible racking system, will certainly produce a system able to roll with the activity of the water, rather than attempting to oppose it.

Chinese researchers study gas release when combusting PET-laminated thin-film solar panels
A group of researchers from the Chinese national research institute has examined the way flexible thin-film solar modules with PET-lamination behave when burnt. The findings show that, in the process of combustion, the device releases such toxic emissions as HCN, hydrofluoric acid, SO2 and some VOCs.
