We will present a novel concept for low cost solar energy production using silicon nanotechnology. With a mix of nanotechnology, proven silicon reliability, and ink formulations, the company is developing a low-cost manufacturing platform to reduce the cost of producing electricity compared to current technologies. We will examine the promise of taking current polysilicon-based solar cells (90 percent of market today) to a completely new level of cost. The high cost of production of solar cells today (even with heavy subsidies) has been one of the major factors inhibiting the overall growth of solar energy as a market. Our silicon nanocrystalline ink holds the promise to bring the cost of solar panels to an order of magnitude lower than today’s polysilicon technology.
