Sharp Energy Solutions Europe is building solar power plants for energy providers in Germany. The first projects being built using Sharp's thin-film modules are being done in cooperation with EnBW Erneuerbare Energien GmbH and Pfalzwerke Aktiengesellschaft respectively.

The 1.42 square meter silicon-based modules generate a high yield and are well-suited to sophisticated system designs thanks to their low output voltage of 60 volts, Sharp said.
