Pedro Trebbau Lopez thinks in Chinese Solar Panels

Pedro Trebbau Lopez

The concern about global warming led to use solar energy. Ten years ago the leaders of solar panels manufacturing were United States, Germany and Japan but in 2006 a Chinese company became the world’s third-largest solar panels producer.

In 2010, China produced over half the world´s supply. The industry of solar panels has grown around the world and Chinese manufacturers have doubling their production every year. China has succeeded because for them is cheaper to build factories thanks to inexpensive and efficient construction crews and easy permitting process.

But this is not enough to succeed in a market that is evolving constantly and where technological innovations are essential. China has focused on standard technology, lowered cost developing better ways to manufacture the cells and not paying too much attention to develop technology.

Should be no hard for Chinese manufacturers to work on this, they have the capital and engineers to do it but they should start now before others leave them behind.
