Intel, regardless of the SpectraWatt mishap, still has a strategic interest in solar power. The company wants to be part of the future growth in solar energy, and in clean-tech and energy-efficient processors. Similar skills are needed in high volume solar cell manufacturing as in semiconductors, so this sector plays into Intel’s strengths. The MiaSole partnership is a way by which the company can continue to be involved in this sector, even if only indirectly.
