The solar power industry is steadily expanding worldwide providing vital energy resources and low carbon technology, including electricity supplies to remote regions where the grid is not available. Reliable materials are vital for the 25-year target lifespan and this includes the polymer components that encapsulate the silicon, the backsheets that prevent ingress of moisture and give protection from the environment, adhesives, sealants and front sheets that all play a role in securing long-term integrity. Applied Market Information (AMI) is bringing the industry together in the US to review the latest developments: Plastics in Photovoltaics 2013 will take place on September 10-11 at the Hilton City Avenue, Philadelphia, PA. The solar power market in the US will be reviewed by Vanguard Energy Partners.
