Review of 23rd European Photovoltaic Solar Energy Conference and Exhibition
Adtec Europe's review of the world's largest Photovoltaic event in 2008.
VALENCIA, Spain, September 5th, 2008 - Adtec Europe would like to thank everyone who visited our stand and contributed to making this, the world's largest photovoltaic (PV) solar energy event this year, a huge success in Valencia this week.
Concern about the effects of fossil fuel use, and their dwindling supply has never been higher, and yet worldwide energy demand continues to rise. In response, interest and investment in renewable energy sources is increasing rapidly.
The technology to provide cost effective PV cells is now here, and major equipment manufacturers are starting to develop tools that will drive the cost per Watt down even lower, further widening the range of economical applications. Based on this, industry estimates predict that the solar equipment market to triple to 3 billion US dollars by 2010.
Based on Adtec's experience with high-power RF technology in semiconductors and TFT-LCD panel production, a number of these equipment manufacturers have chosen Adtec as their key partners for RF power supplies and matching networks. The PV conference in Valencia provided an excellent opportunity to underscore our commitment to the solar industry, and our partnership with the equipment manufacturers who will contribute to its growth.
