While the recent solar market has its dark side (bankruptcies, layoffs, slim profits, and consolidation), the industry continues to innovate and drive device performance ever upward. Some of the following milestones represent ‘hero experiments,’ but nevertheless — the numbers keep rising. Today’s announcement from Suntech raises the bar a little higher for the world’s number [...]
The Chinese solar industry will achieve unprecedented growth in 2012, adding more than 2.8 GW. The strong growth of Chinese solar in 2012 is due to both the 12th Five Year Plan for Renewable Energy Development (2011-2015) and their feed-in tariffs (FiTs). In February, China’s Ministry of Industry and Information Technology posted a plan that [...]

After installing a record 7.5 gigawatts of solar last year in Germany, almost twice the target, the government announced it would cut solar feed-in payments once again to reduce skyrocketing costs. Although the news was widely expected, solar stocks dived on the world markets, also once again. Representatives of Germany’s solar industry met with government officials to find ways to address [...]
A notable development in the renewable energy industry has been the swift ascendency of China in solar cell manufacturing. It took under five years for Chinese manufacturers to dominate production and the global market. Many of these manufacturers are Applied Materials customers.
