To stabilize the market price of polysilicon thin-film temperature back
Experienced in 2009 after a dismal situation, the current thin-film solar market seems back to temperature signs. June 9, 2010 -11 days held in Munich, Germany, Intersolar Europe Exhibition), the thin film solar manufacturers sales than expected.
Comments: Investment Advisor in the new energy industry, said chief researcher Jiang Qian pointed out that as the world's largest solar exhibition professional, Intersolar on a variety of products, market trends, which can be seen as the industry benchmark. Since late 2008, the financial crisis raging, worldwide polysilicon prices blew out, and the resulting crystalline silicon cells, the component prices drop, but the cost advantage of thin-film battery in the past has ceased to exist, the market also extremely bleak. And this effect is directly transmitted to the field of thin film devices.
The equipment manufacturer Oerlikon thin film battery, for example, first quarter 2009 sales of 51 million Swiss francs Oerlikon, with the same period in 2008, a decline of up to 32%. The impact so far has not fully subsided, the first quarter of this year's sales continued to decline to 39 million Swiss francs (about $ 33,988,500), down 24%.
Jiang Qian pointed out that although the Oerlikon Solar is a business operation data, but as the world's leading thin film equipment manufacturer, Oerlikon sales declined year by year, also reflects the current investment in thin-film technology has no 2008 years before the heat, which is an important industry back to a rational expression. However, from another perspective, although investment in thin-film batteries, and not before 2008, the heat, but the situation has stabilized the overall price of polysilicon under the film market warmed not hard to understand, and this is bound to have will once again push back the investment in thin-film batteries.
From the general point of view, since 2006, the development of thin-film battery has been an upward trend. Investment Advisor in the latest release of "2010-2015 China thin film solar cell industry, investment analysis and forecast report" shows that the 2007 global thin film solar cell production reached 400MW, 181MW in 2006 compared with a substantial increase of 120%; 2008 the world's film solar cell production reached 892MW, an increase of 123%. In addition, the CIGS thin film battery, for example, in 2008 global production of CIGS cells around the 40MW in 2009, is further capacity more than 660MW, about the actual production reached 180MW.
Although so far, the conversion efficiency of polycrystalline silicon solar cells are still much higher than the various types of thin-film solar cells, but its relatively high cost is obvious. The CIGS thin film solar cells to flourish, it is the industry in cost and efficiency for both guaranteed a try. Therefore, we can say that although it can not determine the future of thin-film solar cells will be able to replace the polysilicon solar cell market position, but the thin-film battery with competitors popping up, and the rapid development of the whole industry forward at least one of the major performance.
Mitsubishi Motors: The production information with the Toshiba Battery Exchange
2, Mitsubishi Motors of Japan said it would exchange with the Toshiba batteries used in electric vehicle production information, but did not decide whether the application in production of batteries produced by Toshiba.
NEW YORK, July 2 reported that Japan's Mitsubishi Motors Corporation (Mitsubishi Motors Corp.) 2 said Monday that with the Toshiba Corporation (Toshiba Corp.) Exchange used in the production of battery electric vehicle information.
However, a Mitsubishi Motors spokesman said, Toshiba is the Mitsubishi Corporation, one of the exchange of such information, but did not determine whether the battery will be used in Toshiba Mitsubishi electric car production.
Japanese media reported on the 2nd, Toshiba Mitsubishi will soon be put into operation for the supply of lithium-ion battery electric vehicles.
