KYOCERA to Display at 'PVJapan 2014' Solar Power Industry Event in Tokyo, July 30 to August 1

July 24, 2014
Kyocera Corporation (President: Goro Yamaguchi) will be exhibiting at PVJapan 2014 ― a comprehensive event for the global solar-photovoltaic industry ― being held from July 30 to August 1 at the Tokyo Big Sight exhibition center.

Since the start of a new Feed-in Tariff (FIT) program in 2012, the domestic market in Japan for solar energy has been expanding rapidly. The volume of solar module shipments in fiscal year 2014 in Japan increased roughly 6-fold, to 9 gigawatts, as compared to fiscal year 2012; with utility-scale “mega solar” power plants being constructed around the country.
