Bitterfeld-Wolfen (Germany), 4 September 2012 - In September 2012 Q.CELLS will present its portfolio of high quality PV products, applications and technological advantages on three international photovoltaic trade fairs. Starting with an exhibition at Solarcon in Bangalore, India, at the beginning of September, Q.CELLS will then shift focus to the Solar Power International (SPI) in Orlando, Florida, USA, in mid September, before last but not least the company will stress its technological strengths in various presentations at the European Photovoltaic and Solar Exhibition & Conference (EU PVSEC) in Frankfurt, Germany, at the end of the month. On each trade fair Q.CELLS will focus on products or technological advancements specifically suited for the relevant markets.
SOLARCON, INDIA: FOCUS ON SOLAR PARKS AND INDUSTRIAL ROOFTOP SYSTEMS For the second time Q.CELLS is showcasing its high-quality solar modules and applications at Solarcon, one of the leading trade fairs in the important PV market of India. From September 3-5, at booth no. 319, Q.CELLS will present its brand new Q.PRO G2-L solar module. This module is ideally suited for large solar parks due to its 72-cell layout. The focus in PV projects in India has increasingly been on balance of system (BOS) costs. The 72-cell layout of Q.PRO G2-L reduces the number of modules to be installed and thus helps the developer to achieve lower BOS costs with high quality modules. Additionally, the company will present two new products for industrial and residential flat rooftops. Firstly, the company will showcase its elegant all-black solar module Q.PEAK BLK-G2, engineered and manufactured in Germany. Secondly, Q.CELLS will use Solarcon to launch its brand-new PV system for maximized yields and reduced installation costs on industrial and residential flat roofs, branded Q.FLAT-G2. With this portfolio, Q.CELLS aims to strengthen its position in India within the emerging segment of PV systems for commercial and industrial rooftops as well as in the fields of ground mounted solar parks. Since early 2012 Q.CELLS has realised nearly 150 kilowatt peak (kWp) high quality rooftop installations in various parts of India together with local partners. Currently, Q-Cells is working closely with long-term partners for engineering support on a pipeline of 1 Megawatt peak (MWp) in rooftop projects throughout India.
SOLAR POWER INTERNATIONAL (SPI), ORLANDO, FLORIDA, USA: “QUALITY IS IN OUR DNA”
At the Solar Power International trade fair (SPI) in Orlando, Florida - from 10 to 13 September 2012 -Q.CELLS will present its entire high-quality product portfolio from solar cells to modules to applications and system services. At booth no. 1817 Q.CELLS will not only present its latest generation of solar cells but also showcase the Q.PRO and Q.PEAK module families, in particular the 72 cell Q.PRO L module. As the largest addition to the Q.CELLS module family, Q.PRO L is designed to yield up to 300 Wp power for utility scale use in North American solar markets. In North America, Q.CELLS has already realised more than 100 MWp of PV systems installations to date. Here, Q.CELLS will continue to position its products and services among utility and commercial clients who value quality as well as reliable and predictable energy solutions – from the best-in-class solar cell and module technologies - to power plant development and Engineering-Procurement-Construction (EPC) services.
EU PVSEC: Q.CELLS FURTHER STRENGTHENS ITS TECHNOLOGY LEADERSHIP Technological strengths are at the focus of Q.CELLS´ presence at this years´ European Photovoltaic and Solar Exhibition & Conference (EU PVSEC) from 20 to 24 September in Frankfurt, Germany. Backed by a series of world records – the last one being a 301 watt solar module - Q.CELLS will use the conference to prove that also in challenging times it has continued to drive its technologically leading position to a next level. With regard to the focus of this year’s fair, namely research & development as well as PV- technology, Q.CELLS will focus entirely on giving insights into its technological successes with presentations on various sessions ranging from Q.CELLS’ record-setting cells technology Q.ANTUM up to energy learning curves in PV.
