China-based PV manufacturer Jiangsu Akcome Science & Technology Co is issuing non-public ‘A’ shares to raise capital to invest in a second phase capacity expansion of heterojunction (HJ) solar cell and module production.
The forthcoming PV CellTech 2020 event in Penang, Malaysia on 10-11 March 2020 is to feature a special session topic on thin-film solar PV, and review the prospects of this technology being the subject of another round of global investments.
Leading PV manufacturing equipment supplier Meyer Burger Technology has warned of a delay in receiving the first payments for a major heterojunction order from an unidentified North American start-up that was announced in July 2019.
Leading PV manufacturing equipment supplier Meyer Burger Technology has received a further CHF 18 million (US$18.2 million) from partner, Oxford PV for the purchase of key equipment for a 125MW integrated production line to fabricate high-efficiency perovskite HJT tandem solar cells.
Transparent PV (TPV) aims to optimize both the transmission of visible light while maximizing power conversion. Edgar A. Gunther explores some of the companies making major headway towards mainstreaming see-through solar.
Perovskite solar cell developer Oxford Photovoltaics said it was working with scientists at the new Helmholtz-Zentrum Berlin (HZB) innovation lab to further the optimisation of its perovskite cell materials for silicon heterojunction solar cell technology.
The production volume of solar PV panels based on thin-film deposition of semiconductor materials on large-area glass panels is set to hit a seven-year low in 2017, in spite of the end-market demand for solar panels increasing by a factor of three over the same time period.
Hybrid amorphous Si thin-film module producer Sunpreme said had completed deployment of 12.8MW utility-scale project in the Eastern region of the US, using its bifacial double glass GxB370W panels, with 21.5% cell efficiency.
PV thin-film equipment and module producer Hanergy Thin Film Power Group (Hanergy TF) has claimed to have bounced back from a non-cash loss of around US$1.58 billion in 2015 to a first half 2016 net profit of around US$105.8 million.
Struggling solar PV thin-film firm Hanergy Thin Film Power Group said its parent company Hanergy Holding Group had proposed a deferred payment deal on overdue debts totalling US$360 million and interest penalty payments that topped US$25 million at the end of 2015.
The majority owner of Hanergy Thin Film Power Group, Li Hejun has resigned his positions as an executive director and chairman as part of a management reshuffle as it attempts to improve its corporate governance position.
Hanergy Thin Film Power Group’s thin-film equipment manufacturing subsidiary, Fujian Apollo has technically cancelled a 2015 major order worth US$660 million to supply 600MW of a-Si thin-film tools and plant operations to Shangdong Macrolink New Resources Technology Ltd.
