Introducing Sharp Booth at PV EXPO 2014

Wide Range of New Products and Technologies that Realize a Better, Energy-Smarter Life

Tokyo, Feb 20, 2014 - (JCN Newswire) - Sharp will take part in PV EXPO 2014 from February 26 to 28, 2014, at Tokyo Big Sight in Koto-ku, Tokyo. Here at Japan's largest exhibition for the photovoltaic power generation industry, Sharp will show a range of new products and technologies that help realize a better, energy-smarter life.

Exhibit Highlights

1. Residential Solar Power Generation System

Visitors can see an energy solution that combines Sharp's BLACKSOLAR high-efficiency solar modules, a power storage device, the EcoCute heat-pump water-heating system, and electric vehicles (EVs).

2. Commercial Solar Power Generation System

On exhibit will be a system that includes solar modules with increased output capacity and mounting frames that have a minimal number of parts for fast and easy installation. Sharp offers various proposals, from mega-solar plants to small-scale commercial systems with excellent power-generation performance and ease-of-installation. For mega-solar plants, Sharp is a total solutions provider involved in every part of the value chain, including system design, equipment procurement, construction, repair and maintenance, and operation management.

3. Building-Integrated Photovoltaic System

Sharp will show its see-through solar cells that make possible beautifully designed solar panels that let in natural light while also generating electricity. The exhibit will show how these solar panels can be attached to things like window frames and apartment handrails.

4. Next-Generation Solar Technologies

On display are next-generation solar technologies, such as new single crystalline solar cells adopted in BLACKSOLAR panels-which realize higher efficiency by using a back-contact structure-and dye-sensitized solar cells that can be applied to walls to give them power-generating characteristics.

5. Long-Term Reliability

Sharp will display tests that are part of its quality assessment standard for photovoltaic modules. The tests use data gathered from long-running Sharp solar installations such as those in extreme environments like lighthouses and outer space satellites, and from the 30-year operation of a solar panel installation at Tsubosaka Temple in Nara, Japan.
