Although polysilicon suppliers attempted to leverage facility maintenance as a strategy to hold the prices, their attempts failed as major buyers remained conservative at procurement particularly and tried to control low inventory level ahead of the fiscal quarter end. Hence, for 2nd and 3rd tier polysilicon suppliers, who struggled the most from declined orders, the inventory pressure forced them to adapt aggressive pricing for stock clearance, resulting lowered price of polysilicon this week. Meanwhile, despite the declined polysilicon demand from multi-crystalline wafer makers, the demand for high-purity mono grade polysilicon remained solid as the major mono-crystalline wafer makers were still in its expansion phase. Hence, the drop of mono-grade polysilicon prices were relatively limited in contrast with the conventional ones. On the other hand, polysilicon prices in overseas were also set to dwindle further following the accelerated slump of polysilicon in China. Both Korean and American polysilicon suppliers could feel the tremendous selling pressure, as the utilization rates of non-China wafer makers remained depressed. Due to concerns over demand weakness as well as renewed fears that rapid output increase in China flood the market with worsening glut, overall benchmark of polysilicon prices plunged with downstream components.

• EXKAL has installed two Saft Intensium® Mini lithium-ion (Li-ion) energy storage systems (ESS) ‘behind-the-meter’ to optimize the utilization of the existing solar photovoltaic (PV) plant at its manufacturing site in Navarra, Spain. • The Saft ESS is helping to achieve a 20 percent reduction in peak power demand from the local grid together with increased self-consumption of solar power. The net result is a reduction of up to eight percent in the site’s energy bills.
