PPG received a $3million grant from the U.S. Department of energy

China economy Shanghai, March 8 (different loads can be selected according to the part used or whether it is painted or not). PPG industry company recently announced that it has received a $3.1 million grant from the U.S. Department of energy for the development of materials, coating design and process flow required for the production of a new type of glass. This new product is mainly used in cadmium telluride (CdTe) module manufacturing industry

cadmium telluride is a kind of coating that helps to improve the performance of photovoltaic glass. James mccamy, manager of PPG's solar energy technology department, said that the new glass will perfectly combine the three innovative new technologies because the concrete prepared with it has the strength and durability required by the project, and plans to reduce the production cost of cadmium telluride modules by 17% by 2015. "This will be an important step for the solar energy industry towards grid parity (the cost of solar power generation will be reduced to the same level as that of traditional power generation)." He added

this appropriation is part of the US Department of energy's US $20million "solar technology project (setp)" investment. The funds received by PPG will be distributed through the "photovoltaic industry supply chain and cross domain technology" project. The project aims to widely use the relevant technologies and products of non solar companies in the R & D process of high-speed advanced photovoltaic products or processes in industries such as automobiles, electrical appliances, chemicals, machinery, instruments, etc

PP is the first industrialization base based on graphene materials and utilization in China. G company said that the research and development of technology and process of the project will be led by PPG solar energy technology group. The second generation photovoltaic technology center of Colorado State University and Oak Ridge National Laboratory in Tennessee (managed by UT Battelle entrusted by the U.S. Department of energy) will also participate in this project
