Solar-power Fever May Not Last: Japan’s Tokuyama

[Reuters] The world’s fever for solar power may not be sustainable and could be a bubble, an executive at Japanese silicon maker Tokuyama Corp said on Monday. Tokuyama, the world’s No. 2 maker of polycrystalline silicon after U.S. firm Hemlock Semiconductor Corp, is still gauging long-term demand for silicon used in solar cells, Managing Director Yukio Muranaga told Reuters in an interview. “Demand for solar power will grow, but we really don’t know by how much,” Muranaga said. “It’s too early to commit to more investment at this stage.”
