AGC to feature complete solar range at European conference

AGC, Brussels, will present its full range of glass, electronic and chemical products that empower solar efficiency at EU PVSEC, or European Photovoltaic Solar Energy Conference and Exhibition, in Hamburg, Sept.21-25, according to a Sept. 2 release.

For photovoltaic thin film silicon, the focus will be on AGC’s advanced online TC (Transparent Conductive Oxide) range available for generation 8.5. TCO HU will be shown in a sneak preview, as it is still under development. It features a unique coating with a structure
specially designed for tandem junction solar cells. The backing glass used for photovoltaic CIGS is Moly, a molybdenum-coated glass. For all types of photovoltaic modules, Fluon ETFE fluoropolymer film is used as front and back sheet. For both photovoltaic crystalline and thermal applications, the Solite Plus cover glass with its exclusive anti-reflective coating offers performance, durability and aesthetics. For concentrating solar power, the Sun Mirox extra-clear, extra-thin solar mirror and the glass tubes currently being developed by AGC offer the ultimate solutions, according to the release.

Mika Kambe, researcher at the AGC Central Research Centre, will give a lecture about the specificities of light trapping in the tandem junction solar cells resulting from a close collaboration between AGC and the National Institute of Advanced Industrial Science and Technology, Japan’s largest public research organization. She will speak on Sept. 22.
