Thin-film solar industry launches industry coalition

Representatives of the thin-film solar photovoltaic (PV) industry value chain have established their own industry coalition: PVthin.


The international non-profit organisation has been created to "strengthen global energy security and help create sustainable energy infrastructures by promoting the social, economic and environmental benefits of thin-film solar photovoltaic technologies."


The founding members are Abound Solar, Arendi, Calyxo, First Solar, GE Energy and 5N Plus.


"The success of thin-film solar panels is one of the most exciting developments in solar energy in recent years," says Andreas Wade, President of Pvthin.


"PVthin was created 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. PVthin complements the excellent work of umbrella associations such as EPIA in Europe, SEIA in the US, and BSW in Germany and does not seek to create a rival rganisation."
