Ascent Solar Shuffles Board

Thornton, Colorado-based Ascent Solar Technologies, a developer of thin-film solar modules, said last week that it has named Hans Olav Kvalvaag to its board. Kvalvaag replaces Einar Glomnes. Both Kvalvaag and Glomnes represent Norsk Hydro Produksjon AS, Ascent Solar's biggest stockholder. Ascent said the switch comes as Glomnes was promoted to VP of Sales Europe with other commitments.
