Primary Industry:Energy
Executive Summary:AOS Solar is focused on Enabling High Efficiency, Low Cost, Silicon Solar Cells by control of Materials and Energies at the nano scale. AOS Solar, Inc. is developing Solar Silicon 4.0 technology that combines crystalline silicon (c-Si) photovoltaic (PV) efficiency with low cost, high throughput thin film manufacturing economics. AOS Solar\'s mission is to deliver solar modules with the efficiency of c-Si and better manufacturing economics than a-Si. Our targets for 50MW manufacturing are: * 95% less polysilicon * 60% less total energy budget per module * 60% less capital expense budget for the same module manufacturing capacity Our A round funding will be used to continue development of our proprietary equipment / process technology in order to manufacture on larger substrates (2.5\' x 4\' glass) and to design a scaled up manufacturing line based on this development.

“A major challenge for both the technology and the financial communities is finding a forum in which all parties can interact and explore possibilities for future innovation. TechConnect was created to fill this void, bringing both sides together under one roof into a setting that ultimately will help significant ground-breaking concepts come to life.”
