Ascent Solar Technologies, Inc. (AST) is the most recent company created by ITN Energy Systems who established AST in 2005 to manufacture state of the art, thin-film monolithically-integrated CIGS flexible photovoltaic modules.

Ascent Solar and its parent company, ITN Energy Systems, are early developers and manufacturers of multi-megawatt, roll-to-roll production equipment for CIGS photovoltaics on flexible substrates. Ascent Solar plans to be the first solar technology company to take monolithically integrated PV on plastic into full production. Production tools are now at the fourth generation level – fully incorporating proprietary intelligent processing and sensor based controls that have demonstrated exceptional yield and uniformity in manufacturing on first generation products.
