President’s Message | Read More

A few months ago, I mused that our first significant income would come from our Best of Breed program.

Recent developments are making me feel more comfortable with that thought.

To remind you, our Best of Breed program was designed to leverage the many relationships that we have established as a result of Natcore’s branding and technology. We’re taking advantage of these relationships to assemble the most appropriate team based on the requirements, size and scope of a project, as well as its geography.

Well, we now have three Best of Breed projects in the pipeline. They’re in far-flung locales: Belize, the Middle East, and Vietnam….

We are creating the next generation of solar cells. Our technology will change the world.

We are Natcore Technology. We’re a solar R&D company.

And we are creating technology that promises to make solar energy even more cost-competitive with energy derived from fossil fuels.

To reach that goal, we must attain the highest silicon cell efficiencies at the lowest cost. Our technology promises to do both.

So we’re changing how solar cells are made. We have attracted a team of scientists well known for their achievements in the solar industry. We’ve established exclusive licenses and/or joint research agreements with Rice University, the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL), Fraunhofer ISE and the University of Virginia. We’ve received 30 patents (with 35 more pending).

Natcore is aggressively developing two primary technologies:

  • Low-cost, all-back-contact solar cell structures.
  • Black Silicon cells.

We’ve not only achieved exciting new scientific advances in these technologies, we’re also now engaging partners who will help us commercialize them.

We plan to generate revenue from these technologies via licensing agreements, royalties and material sales agreements with solar cell manufacturers and equipment producers.

And through our Best-of-Breed program—wherein we leverage our knowledge to function as a consultant on the design and construction of solar cell and panel fabrication facilities and solar farms—we are now generating important revenue to support our R&D efforts.
