SEMI, the global industry association of companies providing equipment, material and services for the manufacture of semiconductors, displays, photovoltaic cells and related products, has partnered with Solar Promotion GmbH and Freiburg Wirtschaft Touristik und Messe GmbH & Co. (FWTM) to host Intersolar North America.
The event, which will be held in conjunction with SEMICON West on July 15-17, 2008, in San Francisco, will be the largest trade show serving the full solar energy supply chain in the U.S.
"Like semiconductors, solar energy is poised to become an essential and ubiquitous part of modern life, and is one of the largest and fastest-growing technology sectors on the planet. Furthermore, similar manufacturing technology is pervasive in the two industries," says Stanley T. Meyers, president and CEO of SEMI.
"With nearly 20 percent of the SEMI membership actively involved in PV manufacturing technology, the co-location of SEMICON West and Intersolar is a logical and highly complementary collaboration," he adds.
