Aluminium sheets for solar applications
With solar power increasingly considered a viable and accessible renewable energy source, Constellium is playing a key role in the development of solar technology.
A source of clean energy
We help major industry and renewable energy sectors meet their environmental challenges by offering eco-friendly, energy-efficient and sustainable aluminium functional surface products.
Constellium is a leading manufacturer of rolled aluminium sheet products with functional surfaces. We are a world leader of bright rolled and pre-treated matte surfaces.
Additionally, we are a leading supplier of aluminium sheet solutions for the rapidly growing renewable solar energy collector segment.
Products light the way
Designed for tough outdoor environments, the Constellium Solar Surface® portfolio includes aluminium mirrors for solar reflection and concentration and aluminium substrates for selective absorber coating.
They are used in a number of applications:
Solar initiatives in developing communities
Solar cookers offer high energy value without negative environmental impact.
These cookers are particularly useful in areas or villages with little access to energy sources apart from wood, the use of which leads to deforestation.
In this context, Constellium’s Packaging and Automotive Rolled Products business unit is supporting many initiatives in the development sector:
Photovoltaics are used to transform sunlight directly into electricity. Concentrated Solar Power (CSP) technology converts it for indirect use.
