Suntech Plans Research With Silex Solar, University Of New South Wales


Suntech Power Holdings Co. Ltd., the University of New South Wales and Silex Solar have signed an agreement to research advanced technology intended to further improve the power-conversion efficiencies of crystalline silicon solar cells.

The three-year collaborative research project has received an AUD 5 million grant from the Australian Solar Institute (ASI) – the largest award given to any of the 87 grant applicants in the ASI's first competitive funding call.

In addition to the AUD 5 million research grant from the ASI, both Silex Solar and Suntech will contribute more than AUD 6 million in direct funding and in-kind research resources over the next three years to support research operations.
