In a rapidly-growing industry challenged by high costs, lack of standards and the need for technologies that enable the mass production of state-of-the-art solar panels to meet the growing variety of photovoltaic (PV) needs of customers, SCHOTT stands apart with year on year growth buoyed by a wide array of quality products, breakthrough technological innovations and a strong commitment to corporate social responsibilities (CSR). The company's annual revenues grew from 283 million EUR in 2006-2007 to 482 million EUR in 2007-2008.

With 51 years of experience in solar power, SCHOTT Solar's expertise lies in providing advanced manufacturing techniques by combining PV competence with technological know-how for solar power plants. The company is one of the premium integrated quality providers of different PV products in crystalline and thin-film technology and has a worldwide presence through its network of sales partners and system integrators. SCHOTT develops, manufactures and sells high-quality PV products and highly efficient receivers, which is a key factor for Concentrated Solar Power (CSP) technology. CSP not only provides for electricity generation, but also for large-scale applications such as in power plants. Amongst the different CSP processes, solar power plants involving parabolic trough technology have proven their practical value for over 20 years.

SCHOTT Solar's product portfolio in crystalline and thin-film technology includes SCHOTT POLY 175, SCHOTT POLY 225, SCHOTT POLY 280/290, SCHOTT MONO 190, SCHOTT ASI 100 and SCHOTT InDax 225. The company's polycrystalline solar modules have a load capacity of 550 kg/metre square regardless of hurricanes, storms and snow loads. For the benefit of partnering system integrators, the company offers a five year product guarantee and a 25 year performance guarantee..

"With solar cells, crystalline solar wafers, solar power modules and a-Si thin-film modules, SCHOTT Solar provides a wide array of core components in the value chain of the solar energy market," says Frost & Sullivan Research Analyst Suchismita Das. "Beyond offering the best durability factor, the company has grown its market share by providing the latest research on module materials and also by executing the most stringent testing procedures for modules."

In a study lasting over 25 years conducted by the Fraunhofer Institute, SCHOTT Solar's sample solar modules differentiated themselves by an extremely low degradation percentage of less than 10 per cent, promising decades of reliable performance. Further, the company's products pass rigorous certification tests that include DIN ISO 14001:2005 for meeting environmental regulations. To date, the company has successfully installed a total module surface of 5,000,000 square meters. Its modules undergo climate tests that are twice as strict as required by the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC). In order to be 100 per cent environment-friendly, SCHOTT Solar produces calcium free PV.

SCHOTT Solar pursues its commitment towards nature not only by introducing environmentally-friendly processes and materials, but also by carrying out certain programmes and developments for people, planet and profit. Some examples of CSR undertaken by SCHOTT Solar include a 30 KW electric installation for the "Maria Malkia" mission station in Tanzania in 2006, and the installation of 5 KW solar in electric system in Baila's rural hospital ward in the southern Senegalese province of Casamance in 2008. Moreover, SCHOTT Solar is a founding member of the PV Cycle Association that encourages solar companies to replace older solar installations while recycling raw materials in an environmentally friendly manner.

Together, these factors reveal SCHOTT Solar's supremacy in the solar technology for power plants market. In recognition, Frost & Sullivan is proud to present the company with the 2010 European Frost & Sullivan Award for Growth Leadership. Each year, Frost & Sullivan presents this award to a company that has demonstrated excellence in capturing the highest annual compound growth rate for the last three years.

Frost & Sullivan Best Practices Awards recognize companies in a variety of regional and global markets for demonstrating outstanding achievement and superior performance in areas such as leadership, technological innovation, customer service, and strategic product development. Industry analysts compare market participants and measure performance through in-depth interviews, analysis, and extensive secondary research in order to identify best practices in the industry.
