Taiwan Ministry to Push Its Solar Cell Industry

Taipei, Taiwan [DigiTimes.com] The Bureau of Energy under Taiwan’s Ministry of Economic Affairs (MOEA) aims to work with Taiwan’s solar cell players to produce silicon material locally in order to meet a targeted solar cell production capacity of 100 megawatt peak (MWp) by 2010, according to the authorities. … As Taiwan’s solar cell industry will face shortages of upstream silicon supply, MOEA plans to introduce technology from Siemens and the Russian Academy of Sciences, as well as hiring international professionals from solar system making companies. The MOEA will budget NT$1 billion for these proposals and it anticipates Taiwan will produce 300 tons silicon in 2008 and the annual production will increase to 1,000 tons in 2010.
