Stion Hires Product Development Expert Robert Wieting as VP of R&D

San Jose, CA | Posted on June 3rd, 2008

Dr. Wieting joins Stion from Regenesis Power LLC, a provider of turn-key photovoltaic systems financed using power purchase agreements, where he served as the company's Chief Technical Officer. Prior to joining Regenesis, he was Director of Engineering at Shell Solar Industries, where he led the technical team from R&D to megawatt-scale manufacturing of the world's first fully qualified thin-film module made using copper indium diselenide (CIS).

"Bob is an ideal candidate to lead our R&D efforts as we move closer to commercialization," said Chet Farris, Stion's President & CEO. "He is one of the most experienced thin-film scientists in the solar industry, and he has a strong overall understanding of product development that will help us bring our technology to market more rapidly."

Prior to Shell, Dr. Wieting worked at its predecessor companies Siemens Solar, PV Electric GmbH, and Arco Solar in a variety of management positions involving both R&D and engineering. He has led development, scale-up, and manufacturing of amorphous silicon (a-Si), a-Si / germanium, and CIS thin-film devices and has expertise in the areas of module reliability, device characterization, coating development, and product introduction. He has a PhD in Physical Chemistry from Stanford University and a BA with Honors in Chemistry from the California Institute of Technology. He holds five U.S. patents focused on photovoltaics.
