Asia Leading the World In Solar Cell Manufacturing



Asia will produce over 80% of all crystalline silicon solar cells by 2012, according to Greentech Media Research. As of last year, Asia manufactured just over 70% of all solar cells on the planet.

With continued and increased assistance from government programs and lower labor costs, Asia will expand their production and hopes to become the global leader in this increasingly important and relevant technology.

Most international solar cell makers are looking for ways to keep costs low so they can get solar power work out to be of the same input and output value as traditional sources of energy. Inexpensive labor is one of the simplest ways to keep costs relatively low.

China, Taiwan and Japan are on their way to being the world leaders in solar cell production, producing 44% of all solar cells by 2012, which is the equivalent of 12 MW of power.

Is there any solar cell manufacturer in Malaysia?

Grid-connected solar photovoltaics (PV) is the fastest growing energy technology in the world, with 50% annual increases in cumulative installed capacity in 2006 and 2007, to an estimated 7.7 GW.

During 2007, investment in new solar photovoltaic manufacturing facilities was strong in Europe, Japan, China, Taiwan and the United States, with many new operations reported.

Many local schools will soon be using solar power to generate power for the school electricity needs.

I heard there are some foreign companies which are interested to set up their solar panel manufacture factories in Sabah before. But not sure if it succeeded.

It is natural for Asia to lead the use of home solarpanels since we are exposed much under the sun,they can utilize it better than most Nations far from the equator,it is just more on the geographical position.

Hello. My name is Lakshmi. I find your blog very well written and honest. Recently sustainability has been a pre-requisite for all industries as it has become a national aim to be more sustainable. I would like to hear your views on this article I came across. It is about a village in Southern Bavaria and how they produce more environmentally friendly energy than they use. In what ways do you think these technologies can be used in Malaysia to help us create a green environment? How can Malaysia follow this example to be more sustainable country? I really hope to read a post about your views on this topic.
