AU Optronics Corp. (AUO) says its multicrystalline solar module, EcoDuo PM 220, has received UK Microgeneration Certification Scheme (MCS) certification. With the certification, the company plans to expand into the British market.
The U.K. has 42% of homeownership, which is higher than Germany, Italy, France, and other European countries, AUO notes. In addition, since the solar power buy-back scheme has been implemented in 2010, total installed solar power capacity is growing significantly, making the country a promising solar market.
