SunTechnics and SunPower Corp., a Cypress Semiconductor subsidiary, have announced a distribution partnership. The deal gives SunTechnics exclusive rights to market $40 million to $75 million of selected SunPower high-tech photovoltaic (PV) products in Europe through 2005.

Made in Germany, SunTechnics' two latest modules feature SunPower's all-black appearance and all-back-contact solar cells that have conversion efficiencies of more than 20 percent - a world record in mass production. This figure was confirmed by tests conducted at the National Renewable Energy Laboratory in Colorado, U.S., one of the U.S. Department of Energy's laboratories dedicated to clean energy technology development and a key resource for independent verification of performance measurements.

"The partnership between SunTechnics and SunPower represents a major milestone in bringing new high-performance and stylish PV modules to the European market," said Tom Werner, CEO of SunPower. "SunTechnics has built Europe's leading PV sales and installation network, and has a demonstrated capacity to successfully market professionally-engineered, high-value systems in the key market segments. With this new line of 'SunPowered' modules, SunTechnics can offer their customers an unprecedented combination of high-performance and superior aesthetics," Werner added.
