Israeli company TIGI Ltd. was one of three winners in the solar-thermal category at this week's Intersolar Europe Exhibition, a forum for promoting solar technologies that has gathered annually since 1991.

An independent panel of judges on Wednesday evening chose three winners in each of the three categories ­ solar-thermal, photovoltaics and photovoltaic production technologies. The exhibition took place in Munich.

TIGI won thanks to its "Honycomb Collector," a new type of solar-thermal technology that uses a transparent insulation mechanism that significantly increases the efficiency of the collector with minimal heat loss, making it suitable for places like northern Europe, according to the Israel Export Institute.

"The TIGI company's win of this prestigious prize has caused increased interest in the Israeli pavilion, and thus is helping to expose technologies and to create business opportunities for Israeli companies participating in the exhibition," said Galit Soudai, director of the Israel Export Institute's pavilion at the exhibition.
