Crystal Solar
has developed a breakthrough technology which fundamentally alters the cost-efficiency equation for photovoltaics. This technology approach utilizes abundant, environmentally-benign silicon materials, in contrast to other approaches that use rare, environmentally unfriendly materials. This Direct Gas to Wafer™ technology allows for high-efficiency solar panels at radically lower costs with:

  • Less than 15% silicon usage compared to conventional silicon photovoltaic technology
  • Less than 50% of energy input compared to conventional silicon photovoltaic technology
  • Less than 50% of the capital cost compared to conventional silicon photovoltaic technology

The company has proven its technology in R&D, and is currently setting up a semi-automated pilot line to demonstrate the manufacturing-worthiness and scalability of this technology, at radically lowered costs compared to competing approaches.

The company is venture funded, and has premier strategic partnerships with global players in the solar, chemical and semiconductor spaces. In addition, it is the recipient of multi-million dollar research awards by the U.S. Department of Energy.
