FTL Solar's patent-pending products include pre-fabricated, mass produced photovoltaic (PV) tensile structures. The structures integrate thin film PV with super strength fabric with the aim of creating architecturally refined solar canopies, arrays and enclosures that turn sunlight into electricity.
3GSolar Photovoltaics is a developer of solar energy using DSC (dye solar cell) photovoltaic technology with first applications for off-grid rural areas. DSC is a cost-effective alternative to silicon and thin film-based systems, providing an environmentally-friendly solution that produces electricity efficiently even in low light conditions.n
THINKFLEX SOLAR combines the most advantageous characteristic of the two current photovoltaic technologies. The company's modules provide the efficiency of silicon cells and the flexibility of thin film systems through the company's technology and assembly methods. The results are high power output, long lifetime and reliable modules. To simplify installation and transportation these products can be customized in size and shape. The company's products are light weight with favourable aesthetics that are easily adaptable to enhance the creation of new and green designs.
Tisol is a company that received a SBIR Phase I grant for a project entitled: Scalable fabrication of mesoporous thin-films for production of efficient dye-sensitized solar cells. Their project aims to apply a specialized method to develop a rapid, large-scale and inexpensive thin film deposition technology. The goal is to enable the low-cost mass production and maintain the optimized nanostructures and film properties of efficient dye-sensitized solar cells. The broader societal/commercial impact of this project will be the potential to reduce production costs of materials used in dye-sensitized solar cells. Compared to other solar cell technologies, dye-sensitized solar cell technology has the potential of (1) low cost due to the abundance of elements that constitute the cell; (2) lightweight thus reduced installation cost and enhanced flexibility. However, recent advances in photovoltaics industry set a cost standard of < $1/Watt. If dye-sensitized solar cells were to be at par with current technologies on the market, the cost of thin film deposition has to be reduced. This project targets on the development of a high-throughput and large-scale thin film deposition process, which will make the solar electricity via dye-sensitized technology more cost-effective and thus more available.
Sixtron is today focused on developing anti-reflective coating solutions for the solar cell industry. Other highly scalable and cost-effective thin film coating solutions, for both the electronics industry and the industrial coatings sector, are under development. Sixtron thin films have optical and mechanical properties, and can be deposited without the complex requirements of hazardous silane gas.
Sunlight is a privately funded company operating in Colorado, New Jersey, and New Mexico. It was founded in 2007 by a team from Lockheed and Bell Labs with expertise in aerospace, aeronautics, unmanned, and communication systems. The company develops autonomous unmanned airborne vehicles and systems.
