Silver photovoltaic solar advances from Australia

Origin Energy announced construction is underway on its $20 million solar photovoltaic (PV) manufacturing plant in Adelaide, South Australia. The new plant will make solar power panels to demonstrate Origin’s revolutionary Sliver® Solar Cell technology developed with the Australian National University’s Centre for Sustainable Energy Systems. Designed to produce up to 5MW of PV modules per year initially, the plant will be readily expandable to 25MW per year should it meet all design objectives and prove Sliver® technology can be applied at a mass produced scale. It will use world-class solar cell manufacturing technology and specially developed automated module assembly techniques.
