Frost + Sullivan to Host Analyst Briefing on Copper Indium Gallium Selenide (CIGS) Solar Cells

Published on June 16, 2009 at 6:17 AM

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 residential usage.

To participate in the briefing, please email Joanna Lewandowska at joanna.lewandowska@frost.com with the following information: your full name, company name, title, telephone number, e-mail, address, city, state and country. Upon receipt of the above information, a registration link will be e-mailed to you.
