Thin-Film Solar PV Suppliers Unite Under "PVThin" Banner

PVThin , formed under Belgian laws (but claiming it will "register in all relevant government lists"), aims to "champion the role of thin-film PV and communicate the unique technological, environmental and socio-economic aspects of this cost effective and environmentally friendly solar technology," according to Andreas Wade, president of PVThin, in a statement. The group cites figures that thin-film technologies make up about 18 percent of global PV sales, up from "almost nothing a decade ago." Founding members include Abound Solar, Arendi, Calyxo, First Solar, GE Energy and 5N Plus. The group says its goals are not in conflict with, but instead complement, those of other solar industry advocacy groups including the European Photovoltaic Industry Association (EPIA), the Solar Energy Industries Association (SEIA) in the US, and Germany's BSW. "[We do] not seek to create a r...
