New solar cell facility for Melbourne, Australia

Share

The Victoria-Suntech Advanced Solar Facility (VSASF) will be headed by Professor Gu and Dr. Zhengrong Shi, Suntech’s chairman and CEO, as well as a fellow of the Australian Academy of Technological Sciences and Engineering. According to Professor Gu the group’s "strong mix" of research and business expertise will put them in a unique position to research, develop and commercialize their "innovative solar cell technology".

Cooperation between Suntech and Swinburne began in April 2009 when the two parties announced their partnership for the development of nanoplasmonic solar technology. As an extension of that agreement, the VSASF is expected to promote further cooperation among Australia’s world-leading solar research community and could potentially be a precursor to a Suntech production facility in Australia.

"As solar reaches grid parity, in Australia and around the world, we are powering a revolution that will permanently redefine how the world uses energy," said Shi.
