SolarCity logo unveiled at SolarCon India 2009; award for Prof. Weber of Fraunhofer Institute

November 9, 2009

Solarcon India 2009 kicks off in style!
The Solarcon India 2009, which kicked off today at Hyderabad, India, promised much, and well, did not disappoint!

It all started with the chief guest,  K. Rosaiah, the Hon’ble Chief Minister of Andhra Pradesh. inaugurating  the event by lighting solar LED lanterns.

The action continued thereafter when a memorandum of understanding (MoU) was signed between the Fraunhofer Institute of Solar Energy ISE and the University of Hyderabad Knowledge and Innovation Park (UoH KIP), in association with the India Semiconductor Association (ISA).

Proposed activities of collaboration between Fraunhofer ISE and UoH KIP include:

* Setting up of testing and certification facility.
* Designing appropriate training programs in solar energy.
* Research & Development centre.

Also, Prof. Eicke R. Weber, Director, Fraunhofer Institute of Solar Energy, was presented the FABCity Excellence Award 2009 for his outstanding contribution in the field of solar energy.

I recently had the pleasure of doing  a great story with him and was thrilled to meet him during the event.

SolarCity logo unveiled
The logo of the upcoming SolarCity at Anantapur was released today during the Solarcon India 2009 event by K. Rosaiah, Hon’ble Chief Minister of Andhra Pradesh.

The SolarCity logo.
Located in Kadiri area of Anantapur district, it is spread over 10,000 acres of barren land. It has proximity to Bengaluru International Airport (85 kms). The area has suitable radiation index for solar farms as well.

This is a proactive government policy to promote solar power generation in the state. It is in synergy with FABCity, Hyderabad, a center for solar PV manufacturing.

Allotment letters were also given to the following companies by the Minister.

* Sunborne Inc, USA
* Lanco Solar
* AES Solar, USA
* Titan Energy

A little later, Moserbaer Photovoltaic Ltd was allotted 100 acres of land on lease in FABCity SPV for setting up its crystalline based solar cell manufacturing facility during the ongoing Solarcon India 2009.

Much more will be added here during the coming days, including excerpts from various presentations, including the one from Prof. Weber and several others.
