Compare Stion to Competitors

Global Solar Logo
Global Solar

Global Solar Energy, started in 1996, is a producer of thin-film photovoltaic Copper Indium Gallium DiSelenide (CIGS) solar cells.

Xunlight Corporation

Xunlight Corporation develops, manufactures, and markets lightweight and flexible photovoltaic modules that convert sunlight into electricity.

Applied Quantum Technology

Applied Quantum Technology is a maker of equipment to produce copper-indium-gallium diselenide thin-film solar cells.

GreenStone Technologies

GreenStone Technologies is focused on developing next generation of thin film solar photovoltaics using CIGS (Copper indium gallium selenide) nanotechnology. GreenStone also performs custom contract substrate manufacturing.

SV Solar

Description from the homepage/welcome section: Silicon Valley Solar is a manufacturer of flat plate, internal concentrator solar modules. These modules utilize less than half the number of solar cells when compare to traditional solar modules while producing the same or even higher output. Considering the solar cells account for up to 75% of the total module cost, SV Solar's Sol-X technology aims to provide a competitive advantage within the solar industry.

Ambp Technology Corporation

Ambp Technology Corporation is a company that received a SBIR Phase I grant for a project entitled: Photovoltaic Laser Annealing System. Their project proposes to achieve recently reported gains in CIGS solar cell efficiency from in-situ laser deposition, by using an ex-situ laser annealing approach that is compatible with an existing pilot manufacturing system. The proposed ex-situ approach will not need to heat the substrate above the 425C value used to manufacture CIGS solar cells on flexible polyimide substrates. Solar cell technology is an energy alternative that can reduce America's dependence on fossil-fuel-generated electric power. A truly cost effective technology is to build cells using methods whose thermal budgets are low enough to enable the use of inexpensive polymer substrates, which enables large-area roll-to-roll processing and automated cell-to-cell connection techniques. AMBP Tech Corporation will develop and demonstrate a tool to improve solar cell performance that is immediately applicable in the solar-cell manufacturing marketplace.
