AU Optronics Participates Creation of Solar Frisbee Roof at Taipei European School (2009.11.17)
Hsinchu, Taiwan,

AU Optronics Corp. ("AUO" or the "Company") (TAIEX: 2409; NYSE: AUO) announced today that its Solar Frisbee Roof project at the Taipei European School is ready to be launched. As one of the project coordinators, AUO expects that its sponsorship of the photovoltaic Frisbee at the Taipei European School and its role as project coordinator will help AUO and its Solar business partners to promote BIPV applications globally. The project will also provide a model for the best practices of a BIPV project in Taiwan. 

AU Optronics Corp. announced today that its Solar Frisbee Roof project at the Taipei European School is ready to be launched.
From solar module manufacturing to system design, Solar Frisbee Roof at Taipei European School project was co-worked by AU Optronics and other partners.
The Frisbee-shaped solar roof provides a playground for children, while also sheltering them from sunshine and rain.

Co-financed by the German Federal Ministry of Economics and Technology, the TES solar project is a German Energy Agency (dena) Solar Roof Program. Abakus Solar AG, a2peak power, and AU Optronics cooperated on this project, working together on everything from system design to solar module manufacturing. 

The Frisbee-shaped solar roof provides a playground for children, while also sheltering them from sunshine and rain. The roof was constructed from thirty-two 210 W photovoltaic (PV) modules, with an output of 6.8 kWp (kilo Watt peak). It can generate 6,205 kWh (kilowatt-hours) annually, resulting in an estimated reduction of 3.95 tons of carbon emissions. 

“AUO is devoted to being a global leader in Green Solutions,” said Dr. L. J. Chen, President and CEO of AUO. AUO restructured its Energy Office in October and formally founded its “Solar Photovoltaic Business Unit,” with an aim to showcase its rapid development in the solar photovoltaic industry. With the establishment of a dedicated R&D team, AUO's solar business, guided by a strategy of providing total solutions, has been proactively developing the value chain of its energy business, offering the finest integrated technology and services to the world. AUO has been closely cooperating with solar system providers at the end market and rapidly accumulating experience and technology through the execution of large projects. The AUO solar photovoltaic team is expanding its business worldwide.
