The Semiconductor Equipment and Materials International (SEMI) has announced the formation of a solar group as part of the association's new and global photovoltaic (PV) initiatives.

The so-called SEMI PV Group ''was conceived by leaders in photovoltaic manufacturing to address the opportunities and obstacles to bringing low-cost PV technology'' in the market, according to SEMI.

Currently, SEMI organizes a range of PV-related events. The SEMI PV Group is currently working with a diverse set of industry associations to achieve its member goals, including the European Photovoltaic Industry Association (EPIA), the Japan Photovoltaic Energy Association (JPEA), the Solar Energy Industry Association (SEIA) and many others.

The PV advisory committee is comprised of executives representing major PV regions around the globe, and includes the following members: Karl Hesse (Co-Chair), Wacker Chemie; Tatsuo Saga (Co-Chair), Sharp; Wolfgang Koch (Vice-Chair), KoSolCo; Heiko Moritz, GTSolar; Bob Falster, MEMC; Yasunori Uchida, JPEA Representative; Zhengrong Shi, Suntech Power; Simon Tsuo, MoTech; Quincy Lin, NeoSolar; Hans Autenrieth, Centrotherm; Winfred Hoffmann, Applied Materials/EPIA; Peter Pauli, Meyer & Burger; Heinz Ossenbrink, JRC Ispra; Eicke Weber, FhG ISE; and Michio Kondo, AIST.
