AU Optronics To Create Thin-Film Solar Pilot Line


Taiwan-based AU Optronics Corp. (AUO) has established an energy project office that will concentrate on renewable energy solutions, including setting up a pilot line for thin-film solar technology at its Taichung, Taiwan, site this year.

The company says its decision to establish the energy project office and plan the pilot line was based on its technological experience in the TFT-LCD sector and compatibility in numerous manufacturing processes, as well as the increasing technology maturity in thin-film solar power.

‘In addition to its ongoing efforts in TFT-LCD technology, AUO is now extending its innovations into the clean energy industry, seeking a win-win situation for CSR fulfillment in protecting the environment and promising green business opportunities for the TFT-LCD industry,’ states Dr. LJ Chen, president and chief operating officer of AUO.
