We believe in solar and
as consumers and governments around the world strive to reduce the cost
of energy and reduce the production of harmful greenhouse gases we
believe they will to. We are located in California, which has positioned
itself in the near term to become one of the worlds leading generators
of electricity from solar energy. We are uniquely qualified by location
and expertise to benefit from that positioning. We however, also have
interest an expertise in many areas of the world where sun hour windows
are large enough to generate profitable interest in solar.
Concentrated Solar Appliances (CSP)
While not tied to any one
solar approach we are impressed by the strides being made in the
efficiency and cost of solar collectors and heat engines. Our major
business opportunity is the installation of CSPs on grid-connected
commercial rooftops. As such we are looking for innovative products and
systems that would maximize that opportunity. Our goal is to
produce/install 10 mHw per year starting in the near term. Much of it
initially will be for internal consumption so the overall figure will
grow considerably in years to come. At this time we are only considering
solar projects and systems of 25 kW and above.
Our focus is on
non-crystalline based, low maintenance, and malleable BIPVs with
efficiencies in the 35-40% range or greater. They will be sold and
installed worldwide, but mostly in Europe, India, China, and the USA.
Our internal demand will be from our India and USA clients.
The major BIPV products
we are interested in are those that are retrofit compatible and
efficient, and also can be used for new construction. This interest
comes from our own needs and the needs of current clients.
Balance of System
Of special interest to us are concentrator approaches that reduce the
number of PVs needed per square meter of rooftop, hybrid systems that
work in conjunction with other technologies such as wind, and all
solutions must be connectable to grid systems for back-up.
