Started Solar Academy

As part of Sharp’s CSR (Corporate Social Responsibility) activities, the Solar Academy was established in the Makuhari Building in Chiba City. Focusing on issues such as environmental problems and solar cells, the academy provides educational support for elementary and middle school students, as well as public lectures for the general public. The high-tech hall in the Makuhari Building has a permanent exhibition of solar cells, which along with raising consciousness regarding solar power generation, also serves as a training center for specialists in retail and construction.

The academy promotes the timely transmission of information in response to the rapidly expanding market for solar cells.
