More efficient and advanced panels: how Tenka Solar wants to revolutionize the photovoltaic industry

The ecological transition has rightfully entered the agendas of all European countries. The measures decided by the Italian government to stimulate an increase in the production and consumption of green energy, called upon to replace that generated by fossil fuels progressively, go in the direction of a substantial investment aimed at developing industrial supply chains active in the photovoltaic sector and renewables in general. This is a sector in continuous evolution, which counts on companies capable of operating on a global scale and which, in turn, invest in research and development of raw materials to improve energy performance. Activities that are one of the strengths of Tenka Solar, one of the leading companies in the international energy sector, present with distributors, subsidiaries and sales offices in Europe, America and Asia.

Driven by the realisation that energy production is at the dawn of a new era, where innovation and sustainability are the foundations for creating new business models, Tenka Solar has experienced vertical growth, confirming its position as a leading company among the primary producers of renewable energy. A relentless expansion, not only geographically: one of the main objectives is constantly modernising its technology to increase efficiency. Today Tenka Solar, with its 20 GW of energy produced, has one of the leading production lines for solar panels, but also for high-efficiency photovoltaic cells, an element that makes it different from other brands operating in the photovoltaic world.

“We believe in a superior quality product, a highly specialised service,” says Alessandro Giaquinta, CEO of Tenka Solar, “and a direct relationship with our customers, wherever they are. Tenka Solar’s success can be attributed to the team’s ability to work alongside customers and anticipate their needs and the innovative nature of its flagship products. Orion’s technology results from a policy that puts research first”.


The Orion technology solar cell research project looks towards a new generation of photovoltaics, which will also be able to collect high wavelength sunlight (infrared) and transform it into electrical energy with very high efficiencies, creating a cell with an enormous power-to-weight ratio. The nerve centre of this project is the new research centre in Dubai, thanks to which Tenka has been able to boost the panels’ evolution further. According to Giaquinta, meeting the world’s energy needs is one of humanity’s significant challenges for the 21st century. “We are working to ensure that a new generation of highly efficient solar panels can play an essential role in a more sustainable future.

Problems in the sector

However, there is still much to be done in the energy sector. “We are unsatisfied with the market standards and want to create new ones. All our cells have to be rigorously tested to avoid errors. All switching processes are constantly monitored. We use automated and intelligent systems, which are capable of analysing data, identifying areas for improvement and optimising the use of raw materials. Order and technology guarantee the perfect process to produce an ideal product. I moved to China a few years; fertile soil and a market focusing on renewable energies are the starting point for creating the necessary infrastructure for the mass production and distribution of competitive products. Technical skills and a high professional level are indispensable to running a business at its best, but more is needed. The energy world is an extraordinary universe, which must be enriched with constant stimuli and innovative ideas, which are then the real added value.

The research project has space for looking at the future of energy supply systems. Tenka Solar, in collaboration with several university centres, has developed a new technology that can be developed and distributed, overcoming the dynamics of dependence, availability and cost of raw materials to revolutionise the renewable energy system. The goal is to increase energy production using sustainable and reliable technology and simultaneously minimise production costs, making it accessible to all.
