AOS Solar

AOS Solar was started in 2005 to combine the material cost and manufacturing process economics of thin film solar PV with the efficiency and reliability of crystalline silicon solar PV. The company have an initial prototype solar coupon built and tested using technology. nnThe company's key enablers to achieve market traction are the cost and reliability of the company's product. The silicon on glass (SOG) technology the company are developing will enable solar panels costing around $1/watt to manufacture on the company's pilot line, with lower costs as the company ramp up production due to manufacturing efficiencies and learning curve. Solar silicon is an established technology with proven 20+ year life (versus newer thin film technologies). nnToday the company have working coupons at 7.5% efficiency and the company are working to scale up to larger cells with target 9% efficiency in Q-1, 2008. The company's form factor and efficiency limits are based on first generation technology. By scaling the company's manufacturing and improving the company's technology the company expect to achieve 16 - 18% efficiency in a single junction and 22 - 24% efficiency in a double junction module. nnThe company's A round funding will be used to continue development of the company's equipment / process technology in order to manufacture on larger substrates (2.5' x 4' glass) and to design a scaled up manufacturing line (30+MW annual capacity) based on this development.


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.

Greenfield Solar Logo
Greenfield Solar

PhotoVolt, Inc. was founded in 1994 by Bernard Sater, a former NASA Glenn Research Center scientist and inventor, with a vision to enable high intensity photovoltaic ("PV"‚) concentrator systems to achieve lower cost per watt than is possible with conventional photovoltaic technologies. PhotoVolt's cell technology has the potential for making PV power systems economically viable for widespread application and cost competitive with conventional fuels in large-scale global markets. Over the past 14 years, with the support of NASA Glenn Research Center , and the late Dr. Chandra Goradia, a renowned PV researcher at Cleveland State University, with US Department of Energy grants, Mr. Sater successfully proved the promise of his invention and introduced it to the market as a commercial product. In 2007, PhotoVolt management decided to accelerate development of the high intensity concentrator market by forming a new company called GreenField Steam & Electric Co. to develop and commercialize concentrator PV systems utilizing PhotoVolt's cell technology. The new company successfully raised seed money, developed a new concentrator design, made first sales, and secured the IP by filing for many patents. The Company aiming to bring to market a high intensity concentrating PV system named StarGen a solution that is ideally suited to leverage the strengths of the PhotoVolt cell, while delivering "free"‚ thermal energy . This system is designed to make maximum use of off-the-shelf components and materials, holding the promise to produce solar energy at lower price points. In 2008, PhotoVolt, Inc. and GreenField Steam & Electric Co. agreed to merge, becoming GreenField Solar The Company, based near Cleveland Ohio, USA, intends to license its technology in the future. Management is working to raise additional capital to scale up production capacity in 2009 and beyond.
