Dr. Yang Wang
Dr. WANG Yan has professional knowledge of PV technology and hands on manufacturing experiences across various PV products within his ten years career in the PV industry. He got his Ph.D. in 2007 as a co-educated graduate student between Forschungszentrum Juelich Germany and Nankai University China. After returned from Germany, Dr. WANG Yan dedicated himself to the Chinese enterprise SUNVIM for seven years responsible for establishing PV module manufacturing plant. Under his leadership, the company had successfully built up a fully automatic crystalline silicon module production line with 150MW capacity in 2008. His major achievement was for the first time ever he demonstrated CIGS thin film PV module can be produced in a large scale (60MW) with certified 12% module efficiency (by TUV SUD) in China. Starting from Q4 2014, Dr. WANG Yan joined the Solar Energy Research Institute Singapore (SERIS) leading a team to promote commercialization of the most outstanding PV module prototype with SERIS major research achievements integrated. One major R&D project that he is responsible as the lead Principle Investigator (PI) is for developing advanced commercially viable PV module product to reduce Levelised Cost of Electricity (LCOE) of PV for Singapore under the EDB Energy Innovation Research Programme (EIRP).
