Odersun AG Solar Modules Meet Criteria for Higher Solar Power Tariff in Italy

Post Time:Nov 03,2011Classify:Company NewsView:252


 The VDE Institute has confirmed that the thin-film solar cells produced in Germany by Odersun AG will carry the 'Made in Europe' certificate. Solar plant operators using Odersun modules can therefore realize a 10% higher feed-in tariff.


This is based on the latest Italian feed-in law (Conto Energia IV), which introduces new rules for funding solar power in Italy. The energy agency GSE will pay a 10% higher subsidy for projects incorporating European components.


In collaboration with GSE, a certificate has been developed to confirm that at least 60% of a module or its system components have been manufactured in Europe.


About Odersun ( www.odersun.com ) Odersun AG designs and manufactures customized solar products using a proprietary, worldwide patented thin-film technology (CIS -- copper indium disulphide). Its manufacturing process enables the company to produce solar cells that can be assembled into solar modules of virtually any size, form, design or any power, in flexible glass-foil or glass-glass packaging. This adaptability is decisive for applications of building integrated photovoltaics (BiPV).


The company employs over 260 employees at its facilities in Germany and is backed by an international group of leading investors including Doughty Hanson Technology Ventures (UK), Virgin Green Fund (USA/UK), Advanced Technology & Materials (China), PCG Clean Energy & Technology Fund (USA), AGF Private Equity (a member of Allianz Group, France) and Valor KG (Austria).
