Solar energy has been growing in importance as a green and non-polluting
energy source. The global market potential remains significant with cost and
affordability as the key barriers to adoption of solar energy being a viable
energy source. There are many photovoltaic technologies available on the market
among which Copper Indium Gallium Selenide (CIGS) has emerged as the best one
thanks to its technological advantages, low manufacturing costs and high yield
rates. The CIGS technology is expected to increase global solar power penetration
significantly in the coming years.
"The CIGS technology brings the combination of low cost, silicon-free
material and energy efficiency. With increasing adoption of cheaper manufacturing
processes for the manufacture of CIGS photovoltaic cells, there is a significant
potential for these cells to become the cost-effective and clean energy source
of the future" - says Harish Natesan, Research Analyst for Frost &
Sullivan's Electronics & Security practice.
Frost & Sullivan,
the Growth Partnership Company, enables clients to accelerate growth and achieve
best in class positions in growth, innovation and leadership, is pleased to
announce its 2009 quarterly analyst briefing presentation on CIGS Solar Cells
which is going to be held on Thursday, 25 June 2009, at 16.00 BST.
The briefing will include a comparative analysis of competing photovoltaic technologies,
drivers, restraints and challenges influencing the adoption of CIGS in the manufacturing
of solar cells, as well as forecasts outlining the market potential for CIGS
solar panels in the coming years.
This analyst briefing will be beneficial to solar cell manufacturers, suppliers,
solar panel assemblers, contract manufacturers, as well as Original Equipment
Manufacturers (OEMs) manufacturing solar powered products for commercial and
