Ecobuild Show 2010: Kyocera presents MCS-certified photovoltaic modules
28 January 2010
Kyoto / Neuss, 28 January 2010 – The Japanese technology corporation Kyocera is one of the worldwide leading manufacturers of photovoltaic modules. At the Ecobuild trade show in London, the company will present its modules which comply with the Micro Certification Scheme (MCS). Kyocera is one of the first companies who have received the MCS certification.
Kyocera Fineceramics GmbH at Ecobuild show: 2 to 4 March, Stand No. 1633.
At the world’s biggest event for sustainable design, construction and the built environment, Kyocera will present its KD high-performance solar modules, certified according to the requirements of the Certificate of Approval Microgeneration. Following Kyocera solar modules received the MCS Certificate: KD 135GH-2PU, KD 185GH-2PU, KD 205GH-2PU and KD 210GH-2PU. The modules comply with the Generic Factory Production Control requirements and Product Certification requirements for solar photovoltaic modules.
The Microgeneration Certification Scheme (MCS) is an independent scheme that certifies microgeneration products and installers in accordance with consistent standards. It is designed to evaluate microgeneration products and installers against robust criteria providing greater protection for consumers. Thanks to the new feed-in tariff from April 2010 photovoltaic installations are becoming very attractive for private house owners.
The Kyocera Corporation is a front runner in the solar energy market and began to develop solar cells in 1975. Thanks to these many years of experience, the company masters all production steps at the highest level, from wafer and cell production to module assembly, thus ensuring that its high quality standard is maintained.
For this reason Kyocera solar modules were chosen to equip outstanding buildings all over the world, for example the European Court of Justice in Luxembourg. Kyocera even provides cars with a solar roof. A special solar panel supplies the air-conditioning system of the Toyota Prius with energy.
