Applied Materials announces new PV metallization system to boost solar cell efficiency, set low Cost-of-Ownership benchmark

2015-04-24 |

Ahead of the SNEC International Photovoltaic Power Generation Exhibition being held next week, Applied Materials, Inc. (Santa Clara, California, US) on April 24th, 2015 announced its “Applied Tempo” metallization system that is setting new efficiency, high-productivity and low-cost benchmarks for manufacturing advanced high-efficiency solar photovoltaic (PV) cell designs. Supporting Applied's “Fine Line Double Print” (FLDP) technology and record throughput, the Tempo platform delivers substantial efficiency, yield and cost benefits that translate into the industry's lowest cost of ownership and lowest overall cost-per-watt solution for cell manufacturing, reads the press release.

2012 solar PV year in review: A complex picture of a changing market

2013-01-24 |

The difficulties that the global solar industry experienced in 2012 were both clear and expected. Continuing excess solar photovoltaic (PV) manufacturing capacity spurred a collapse in prices across the PV value chain, creating consistently negative margins and negative profitability for upstream PV manufacturers. This led to a large number of bankruptcies, insolvencies and acquisitions, but also trade wars between the United States and China, the EU and China, and between India and everyone else.

Solar Interview on desert challenges: O&M in China’s solar market

2014-12-16 |

There is growing discussion around the effects of harsh climatic conditions on the O&M of PV plants. It’s not just an issue for China, is it? No, definitely not. With cumulative global PV capacities reaching ~180 GW this year, the O&M market for solar PV installations worldwide is already substantial. Out of this total, more and more PV installations are operating under demanding climatic conditions, such as in deserts or in highly polluted areas, and this will increase in the future, especially in emerging markets. These challenging environments require module manufacturers and power generators to adapt their module design and O&M strategies accordingly, which is vital for plant profitability. Read more...

Solar point of view: Why settle for less? The use case for higher efficiency PV modules in the UK

2015-02-13 |

“With more then five million households in the UK having already installed solar panels, and that number still set to grow, I think it’s time to debunk some of the perception myths on higher efficiency modules,” says Sven Armbrecht, UK Manager, LG Solar. In this Solar point of view, he advocates the use of higher efficiency PV modules in the UK. Read more...
