Sila Nanotechnologies Inc. was founded in 2011 by a team of Silicon Valley entrepreneurs in collaboration with the Georgia Institute of Technology to revolutionize portable energy storage. They plan to create batteries that are lighter, smaller, and cheaper than today's state of the art lithium-ion technology.
The company's thin-film photovoltaic solar panels, using copper indium gallium selenide (CIGS), combine innovations in equipment, materials and process to achieve high efficiency at unprecedented scale.
Skeleton Technologies is a manufacturer and developer of high energy and power density ultracapacitors. The company's energy storage technology is based on patented SkeletonC material, a highly nanoporous carbon, which is uniquely produced and optimized in-house.
Sol Voltaics AB is a venture-backed, development-stage nanotechnology company focused on development and commercialisation of a method of producing portable, semi-conductor nanowire-based high-efficiency solar cells using a low-cost, very high volume production method based on guided self-assembly of nanowires in the gas phase.
Solar Botanic will introduce artificial trees that make use of renewable energy from the sun and wind, they are an efficient clean and environmentally sound means of collecting solar radiation and wind energy.
Solaronix is active in the area of renewable energy and has a leading position in the development of new photovoltaic cells imitating natural photosynthesis. In particular, the dye sensitized nanocristalline titanium oxide solar cell is in a advanced stadium.
The company is singularly positioned to lead the development of truly sustainable and cost-effective solar technology by introducing a new dimension of cost reduction by replacing silicon wafer-based solar cells with high-production, low-cost, efficient Quantum Dot-based solar cells. Solterra is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Quantum Materials Corporation, Inc.
Stion Corporation (formerly NStructures) is a solar photovoltaics company developing high-efficiency thin-film modules. The Company is aiming to minimize the total installed system costs of solar electricity. Stion was founded in 2006, and its technology is based on the work of Dr. Howard Lee, a leading researcher in nanotechnology and semiconductor materials and devices.
SunFlake is developing a new generation of solar cells based on a novel shape of semiconductor nanostructures (NanoFlakes). The nanostructures can eliminate the need for a lattice-matched substrate as well as the need for a clean solar grade substrate.
SLAT (or Superlattice Power Inc.) pioneers Superlattice Cathode Material for the use in Lithium Ion Rechargeable. It has successfully introduced Superlattice nano and submicron materials from laboratory to industrial scale.
CERATOM® technology developed by TERMIONA is a brand new technology for thermal electricity markets. This technology determines the primary specialization of the company, i.e. manufacturing new generation of thermoelectric systems with nanostructured composite heat exchangers, the various thermal electricity devices based thereon inclusive.
XsunX is focused on lowering the cost of solar power generation and increasing solar energy applications through the development of unique thin film photovoltaic (TFPV) materials, designs, and manufacturing processes. Includes Hybrid Nano Crystalline for high performance opaque applications rivaling silicon wafer efficiencies.
