President’s Message | Read More

It has been some time since we spoke in depth about the progress we are making with our technologies. I thought now would be a good time to do so.

Recently we have had several manufacturing firms from Europe and Asia visit our laboratory in Rochester to review our technologies and to see if we might cooperate with them. As a result, we have developed a variety of milestones as well as budgets to achieve those milestones…….

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 32 patents (with 33 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 plan to generate important revenue to support our R&D efforts.
