The petroleum was recognized as the most important resources, its production is the penetration artificial or the machine production. However, its reserves are limited, also is called the non-regeneration energy. For example, the petroleum, the natural gas and the uranium mine and so on. Along with unlimited using, the quantity of the resources had already reduced. Because of the high price of oil and the bad impact on ecological environment, people payed more attention on new energy, which we also called the regeneration energy. The regeneration energy includes the solar energy, the wind energy, the geothermal energy and so on. However, the solar energy is most ideal energy. In recent years, people widely used solar energy because of the higher solar cell efficiency (including solar solar battery) . For example, using the solar energy on the building or the air conditioning system, the experts thought the solar energy utilization will have the biggest progress for the next ten years. Nowdays, industry can develop solar cell industry more easily because of the low material cost. The research basically adopts qualitative research methods to study the similarity and difference between the silicon solar industry and semiconductor industry through (energy) industry economy and policy, product (market development) life cycle, industry (business) value chain, diamond framework and industry cluster and so on. The successful deployment of solar cell industry in Japan and Germany are derived from their long-term, breakthrough policy and subsidy programs.This not only creates huge demand from end users but also enhances manufacturers to improve process, expand production capacity, research and develop new materials and processes. And it also encourages newcomers to enter into this industry. Although the solar cell industry policies and subsidy programs in Taiwan and China are not so good especially poor in Taiwan, a solar cell industry with a skyrocketed growth has still been able to be established. This is because Taiwan has a strong foundation and integrated clusters in semiconductor, TFT-LCD, recently developed LED and related information industries. Once a new industry opportunity and considerable market demand appears, firms still can establish a prosperous PV industry in spite of poor support from the government. And firms’ vision and mission to green energy industry and green reengineering also help the industry’s development. To keep current status and further advance to leading position, local solar cell industry should research new generation materials, vertical integration and they also should make their best endeavors to get fully support from Taiwan administration to the industry.
