China To Acquire First Solar CdTe Modules

First Solar will work with Zhenfa to deploy its cadmium telluride modules to power up the Xinjiang province
First Solar is to supply 2 megawatts (MW) of its CdTe solar modules to one of Zhenfa's New Energy Science & Technology Co., Ltd. solar projects in Xinjiang province in the first quarter of 2013.

The collaboration will be First Solar's first commercial demonstration project in China and provide a strong platform to showcase the company's photovoltaic (PV) technology.

"This agreement marks an important step forward in First Solar's efforts to support China's renewable energy goals with its advanced solar technologies and global solar industry expertise," says Bruce Yung, Managing Director and Vice President of Business Development for First Solar in China.

"We are excited to work with a strong partner like Zhenfa to demonstrate our advanced thin-film technology. I expect this will be the first of many opportunities for collaboration between First Solar and leading Chinese companies, both within China and globally."

"We are very happy about our partnership with First Solar, which is providing its world-class PV technology to one of our key projects. By sharing experience, expertise and technologies we are creating a very strong combination. We look forward to exploring additional opportunities to work together to generate clean, renewable energy for China and the world," adds Zha Zhengfa, Chairman of Zhenfa.

Yung adds, "An important element of First Solar's business strategy is to work with Chinese partners to create shared value both in China and abroad. The agreement between First Solar and Zhenfa will serve as a positive example of win-win collaboration between leading renewable energy companies from China and the United States."



AngelTech Live III: Join us on 12 April 2021!

AngelTech Live III will be broadcast on 12 April 2021, 10am BST, rebroadcast on 14 April (10am CTT) and 16 April (10am PST) and will feature online versions of the market-leading physical events: CS International and PIC International PLUS a brand new Silicon Semiconductor International Track!

Thanks to the great diversity of the semiconductor industry, we are always chasing new markets and developing a range of exciting technologies.

2021 is no different. Over the last few months interest in deep-UV LEDs has rocketed, due to its capability to disinfect and sanitise areas and combat Covid-19. We shall consider a roadmap for this device, along with technologies for boosting its output.

We shall also look at microLEDs, a display with many wonderful attributes, identifying processes for handling the mass transfer of tiny emitters that hold the key to commercialisation of this technology.

We shall also discuss electrification of transportation, underpinned by wide bandgap power electronics and supported by blue lasers that are ideal for processing copper.

Additional areas we will cover include the development of GaN ICs, to improve the reach of power electronics; the great strides that have been made with gallium oxide; and a look at new materials, such as cubic GaN and AlScN.

Having attracted 1500 delegates over the last 2 online summits, the 3rd event promises to be even bigger and better – with 3 interactive sessions over 1 day and will once again prove to be a key event across the semiconductor and photonic integrated circuits calendar.

So make sure you sign up today and discover the latest cutting edge developments across the compound semiconductor and integrated photonics value chain.
