Introducing Sharp Booth at PV EXPO 2014

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
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.
