THALHEIM, Germany — This sad stretch of eastern Germany, with its deserted coal mines and corroded factories, epitomizes post-industrial gloom. It is a place where even the clouds rarely seem to part. Yet the sun was shining here the other day — and nowhere more brightly than at Q-Cells, a German company that surpassed Sharp last year to become the world’s largest maker of photovoltaic solar cells. Q-Cells is the main tenant among a flowering cluster of solar start-ups here in an area known as Solar Valley.

TUESDAY Aug 30, 2005

JAKARTA, Aug 30 Asia Pulse – Solar Shell has sounded out the market of solar energy in Indonesia by opening its marketing office in Jakarta, chief of Indonesia Shell group Bob Moran said in a press release here on Monday.

“I am very happy to expand our market by opening an office in Indonesia.

According to him, the objective of the company`s market in Indonesia was to sell solar energy to rural areas which have yet to be electrified.

He said the opening of the Jakarta office was based on Shell`s experience in construction solar energy generating plants in India, Sri Lanka and the Philippines, and the company`s success in meeting the solar energy demands in the rural areas in those countries.

Moran noted further that they had a commitment to supply solar power to 2,000 homes in rural areas in the next two years. read more
