This is a highly competitive and secretive market. Improving yield, quality and efficiency in photovoltaic production can make a great difference in the scalability of the process. Equipment communications is essential to knowing what is going on.
A new manufacturer of high performance thin film photovoltaic (PV) modules is scaling up their proprietary semiconductor technology for low cost high volume manufacturing. The modules will be deployed in large scale solar PV power plants and will efficiently tap into the vast energy potential of the sun. They will produce environmentally friendly renewable electricity that is economically competitive with electric power generated from conventional fossil fuels.
