Enerpoint, MHH Solartechnik and SunConnex have agreed to purchase and distribute Advent Solar’s ‘Ventura’ solar modules in Europe to the tune of 250MW through 2013. The ‘Ventura’ technology from Advent was announced at the 2008 European Union Photovoltaic Solar Energy Conference, in Valencia, Spain.
“Advent Solar is focused on helping the solar industry move closer to grid parity by providing innovative solar solutions that maximize efficiency and increase energy output,” said Peter Green, president and CEO of Advent Solar. “Our partnerships with Enerpoint, MHH Solartechnik and SunConnex are key elements of our long-term growth strategy in Europe and demonstrate our commitment to moving solar energy from an alterative technology to a mainstream solution.”
The Ventura Solar Technology from Advent Solar is said to combine Emitter-Wrap Through (EWT) back-contact cells with semiconductor device manufacturing methods deliver high energy output by optimizing silicon light capture, and dramatically improving cell and module-level connectivity to minimize resistive losses, while using thinner silicon wafers to reduce costs.
