Cost: Free to SEMI Members; $50 for non-members
In this webinar series brought to you by SEMI PV Group and NPD Solarbuzz, we will take a look at the current landscape within Japan covering technology, supply and demand. In particular, how the policies and space constraints are being seen as one of the key indicators for high-efficiency mono c-Si panel deployment. Second, we will take a top-level view of the global PV market growth, how we got here, the impact on supply chain players, and the outlook for the next few years.
in Japan: From Technology-Leaders to Market-Drivers
Finlay Colville, Ph.D., Vice President, NPD Solarbuzz Team Leader
PV in Japan has been playing a pivotal – but somewhat changing – role within the industry. From early technology-leaders with advanced c-Si cell concepts and large panel thin-film fabs to new end-market driven policies to stimulate domestic energy supply from renewables, each initiative has had a direct effect on global PV supply and demand trends. This presentation will discuss the current landscape within Japan covering technology, supply and demand. In particular, how the policies and space constraints are being seen as one of the key indicators for high-efficiency mono c-Si panel deployment.
