CELL AWARD 2010 is now accepting entries!

The International Solar Technology Awards are designed to acknowledge and recognise achievements in the production of solar technology. Emphasis is placed on real-world technical expertise required throughout the supply chain to push solar power toward grid parity without government subsidies.

In 2010, the awards will be given out from the Photovoltaics International Booth at SNEC in Shanghai. Winners will be featured in the May 2011 edition of Photovoltaics International and on http://www.pv-tech.org . See last year's feature here.

Each award category is judged by a panel of industry experts and the industry public who voted online for their favourite candidates. Judges use pre-set criteria, which helps ensure awards are granted in an unbiased way.

Awards are open to all companies involved in the solar industry. Simply register and login to your Cell Award website account, to be eligible to vote and access our award submission page, which contains a step-by-step guide to entering your company's product, technology or fab in Cell Award 2010!

If you have any queries, just drop us an email.
