Suntech’s (STP) Victoria-Suntech Advanced Solar Facility Launched In Australia

The Victoria-Suntech Advanced Solar Facility (VSAF), a joint project from Suntech and Melbourne, Australia’s Swinburne University of Technology, launched yesterday in Melbourne.

The VSAF will enable Suntech and Swinburne to collaborate and find a way to commercialize Swinburne’s new NANOPLAS technology.

According to Professor Min Gu, who is the Director of the Swinburne Centre for Micro-Photonics and will head the VSAF in conjunction with Suntech Chairman and CEO Dr. Zhengrong Shi, the NANOPLAS technology makes solar panels more efficient by allowing them to collect energy across more of the color spectrum.

In a, Dr. Zhengrong Shi commented on the facility:

“By combining Swinburne University’s strong research capabilities and Suntech’s R&D and manufacturing platform, we can accelerate the development of cutting-edge technologies to drive down the cost of solar,” said Dr. Zhengrong Shi. “As solar reaches grid parity, in Australia and around the world, we are powering a revolution that will permanently redefine how the world uses energy.”
