Additional Intellectual Property Protection Supports Day4 Energy's Global
BURNABY, BC, Aug. 21 /CNW/ - Day4 Energy Inc. (TSX: DFE), a leading
manufacturer of high performance, cost-effective solar electric modules, today
announced that the China Patent & Trademark office has issued a decision to
award the company a patent for its core Day4 Electrode(TM) solar technology.
The Chinese patent approval adds to existing intellectual property protection
the company holds in key global markets including the European Union, United
States, India and Mexico.
"With international market demand for the advanced Day4 solar energy
modules continuing to outpace our current product supply, we continue to
evaluate near- and long-term production expansion strategies. This Chinese
patent protection allows us to further explore partnership and growth
opportunities in Asia, a region with significant electrical power generation
market potential as well as photovoltaic and electronics manufacturing
capabilities," said George Rubin, president of Day4 Energy.
The Day4 Electrode is an advanced construction technology that directly
replaces the decades-old soldering methods that are widely used to manufacture
solar panels. By improving connections to and between photovoltaic (PV) cells,
the Day4 Electrode delivers quality solar electric products with higher
performance, longer lifetime, improved aesthetics and lower cost. The Day4
Electrode further enables more efficient design and manufacturing of next
generation PV technologies including lower-cost upgraded metallurgical grade
(UMG) silicon and thin film materials. Day4 Energy is seeking patent
protection for this and other related technologies in a number of additional
