Sharp is one of the leading manufacturers of solar panels and at the IFA it had put on display a polycrystalline-type panel that could generate 200kwh/year of electricity -enough to power one of Sharp’s latest 52″ models for 4.5 hours/day.

Sharp is making massive investments in the field of solar technology and its total production will reach 1 gigawatt of panels a year in the near future.
