Solar EnerTech Corp. says it has received its Underwriters Laboratories Inc. (UL) certification for a wide range of its crystalline power modules. The company says this certification is crucial for entry into the North America market, where it will focus on grid-tied, utility-scale installations and rooftop projects.
Solar EnerTech has also announced two new appointments: Y.H. Zhang has been named chief technology officer (CTO), and Dr. Z.Q. Ma has been appointed chief science officer.
Prior to joining Solar EnerTech in 2006 as associate CTO, Zhang worked for China's national space program on space solar applications, and she has extensive knowledge and experience in high-efficiency cells and applications. Her main responsibility will be to oversee the Solar EnerTech's solar cell production with technical guidance and focus on increasing solar cells' overall efficiency at real-time manufacturing, as well as working with the company's joint lab partnership with Shanghai University for the company's ongoing research and development (R&D) projects.
A specialist in semiconductor material physics, Dr. Ma was previously the company's CTO and was in charge of the company's R&D Lab with Shanghai University. Ma is a professor of microelectronics and condensed matter physics at Shanghai University and is also a researcher at the University of Illinois at Urbana Champaign and at the Japan Atomic Energy Research Institute.
