Is the solar slump over?

Seems to me that solar is shining bright again from the recent activities I saw the past few weeks. Interestingly enough, most of the news are coming from chemical companies that developed new materials to make photovoltaics more efficient and cheaper.
  • BASF presented its Seluris range of cutting fluids products for cutting, etching, texturing and doping mono- and polycrystalline solar cells; and COLO-Fast® polyurethane casting system for more economical and secure framing of photovoltaic and solar panels.
  • Dow Electronic Materials launched its ENLIGHT™ photovoltaic products, which the company said, increase solar cell efficiency and yield, improve device performance at low cost, and enable faster adoption of solar energy as a renewable energy alternative. The products are used on PV cleaning, imaging, texturizing, and metallization. Dow Chemical's adhesives and functional polymers business also presented its Adcote™ solventless adhesives for photovoltaic backsheet applications.
