This has greater efficiency than other thin-film technologies – currently 19.9 percent according to research. At Stand J26 in Hall C1 experts from centrotherm photovoltaics will inform about latest technologies with regard to CIGS and solar-grade silicon as well as recent developments in the turnkey-business.

The provider of technology and services for manufacturing solar cells and solar-grade silicon will be giving information to anyone who is interested on Friday 4 April 2008 at the company’s headquarters in Blaubeuren.

The event is free of charge, visitors will only have to pay travel expenses, and the trade magazine PHOTON is providing a shuttle service (which you will have to pay for) from Munich and back again. The shuttle bus will be ready waiting in front of the trade fair for transfers at 8 am on 4 April.
