Energy Conversion Devices Inc. (ECD) plans to establish a 30 MW solar laminate manufacturing facility in France. The company has started its initial site-selection process and is evaluating various sites, particularly in the Alsace region.
‘France is one of the world's fastest-growing and most progressive solar markets,’ says Mark Morelli, ECD's president and CEO. ‘It has expressed its long-term support of alternative energy in the Grenelle de l'environnement objectives, and the recent change to its feed-in-tariff structure establishes a sustainable foundation to meet those objectives.’
The expected date of factory completion was not disclosed.
