In the former military training area of Lieberose north of Cottbus, the project developer juwi from Rheinland Palatinate and the solar module manufacturer First Solar are busy constructing the power plant, which will have an overall output of 53 MWp and will occupy an area of 162 ha. The plant will generate some 53 million kWh of environmentally friendly electricity each year, enough to supply around 15,000 households.
The debt capital of up to EUR 130 million (depending on the final overall capacity) will be provided by a syndicate of banks under the lead management of KfW IPEX-Bank and under participation of NORD/LB, DZ Bank, Helaba and Bremer Landesbank. KfW IPEX-Bank will be providing around one third of the volume. The total term is 18 years. The relevant agreements were signed a few days ago. The long-term financing also includes funds from the promotional programmes of the European Investment Bank and KfW Bankengruppe.
The plant will be equipped with thin-film modules supplied by the German subsidiary of market leader First Solar in Frankfurt/Oder. The plant is scheduled for completion by the end of 2009. Over 20 years the project will benefit from guaranteed feed-in tariffs under the Renewable Energies Act.
The photovoltaic power plant at Turnow-Preilack is under construction on the site of a former contaminated military training area, which is to be restored to its natural state after its use for solar power generation. The financing of projects in the area of renewable energies is an integral part of the range of offerings of KfW IPEX-Bank and contributes to protecting the environment and the climate.About KfW IPEX-Bank GmbH

Ultrafast lasers have introduced new possibilities in engraving ultrafine structures, and scientists are now also investigating how to use them to etch microstructures into thin glass. There are possible applications in analytics (lab on a chip) and especially in electronics and the consumer sector, where great interest has been shown.
This new method was born of a surprising phenomenon: irradiating glass in a particular way with an ultrafast laser has the effect of making the glass up to a...

Researchers from the Institute for Quantum Computing (IQC) at the University of Waterloo led the development of a new extensible wiring technique capable of controlling superconducting quantum bits, representing a significant step towards to the realization of a scalable quantum computer.
"The quantum socket is a wiring method that uses three-dimensional wires based on spring-loaded pins to address individual qubits," said Jeremy Béjanin, a PhD...
In a paper in Scientific Reports, a research team at Worcester Polytechnic Institute describes a novel light-activated phenomenon that could become the basis for applications as diverse as microscopic robotic grippers and more efficient solar cells.
A research team at Worcester Polytechnic Institute (WPI) has developed a revolutionary, light-activated semiconductor nanocomposite material that can be used...
By forcefully embedding two silicon atoms in a diamond matrix, Sandia researchers have demonstrated for the first time on a single chip all the components needed to create a quantum bridge to link quantum computers together.
"People have already built small quantum computers," says Sandia researcher Ryan Camacho. "Maybe the first useful one won't be a single giant quantum computer...
