NanoMarkets released the report "Encapsulation and Flexible Substrates for Organic and Dye-Sensitized Photovoltaics" that claims that novel encapsulation and substrate materials are the key to the long-term survival of organic photovoltaics (OPV) and dye sensitized cell (DSC) photovoltaics. The report projects that a $1.3 billion encapsulation and substrate market will be possible by 2017.
At Renewable Energy World Conference & Expo North America, taking place March 8-10, 2011 in Tampa, FL, executive directors from North America's leading renewable energy industry associations--including solar, wind, hydro, biomass and geothermal--will discuss federal and state policy and finance issues during a special plenary session.
BTU International (Nasdaq: BTUI) will integrate DuPont Packaging Graphics' catalytic oxidation technology into Tritan metallization firing systems. The technology was developed for abatement of VOCs, originally in DuPont flexographic printing systems, and conserves energy compared to thermal oxidation.
Varian Semiconductor Equipment Associates Inc. (Varian, NASDAQ: VSEA) secured a $4.8 million grant from the DOE under the Obama administration's SunShot program to develop U.S. solar technologies. The goal of this project is to reduce the cost of manufacturing interdigitated back contact cells.
Suniva's next-generation ARTisun Select series solar cells are in production. These screen-printed cells are achieving conversion efficiencies of 19%+. Suniva attains these efficiencies using a uniform single-sided emitter along with other proprietary innovations on the front side of the cell.
The Solar Engineering & Manufacturing Association (SEMA) will hold a March meeting in CA to address the impact of China’s manufacturing model on the global solar manufacturing industry. The technical assessment of China's photovoltaic (PV) industry will offer comparative data on capital cost models, technology, manufacturing efficiency and quality practices.
Stop Struggling with High-Voltage Capacitance Measurement!
The input, output and reverse transfer capacitance of power MOSFETS (Ciss, Coss and Crss respectively) are critical device parameters for switching applications. ...
