Cyrium Technologies Introduces Customized CPV Solar Cells To Meet Demanding and Unique Applications

Ottawa, Ontario | Posted on August 3rd, 2010

These high-efficiency concentrator photovoltaic (CPV) cells are for terrestrial solar applications. Cyrium's ASCC capabilities provide its clients with custom engineered solutions enabling them to optimize cell performance to match the requirements of their specific CPV systems.

"Building on the success of our QDEC (Quantum Dot Enhanced Cell) product line," said Harry Rozakis Cyrium's president and chief executive officer, "we are now addressing the unique needs of CPV systems developers by enabling them to achieve enhanced system performance."

Essentially, the advantage of Cyrium's new ASCC offering is that instead of ordering an off-the-shelf design for a CPV cell, Cyrium can now deliver a cost-competitive, individually engineered product tailored to address the needs of the client's system and the environment where the system will be installed. The client receives a customized product - one that maximizes the core advantages of Cyrium's advanced and proprietary quantum dot technology, allowing their system to deliver the lowest possible cost of energy.

"The distinct benefit of the quantum dot technology used in all Cyrium's QDEC products is that it lends itself to customization without trading off performance. All these advantages are delivered with the lowest cost of ownership and with the flexibility of a fabless manufacturing environment," Rozakis stressed.

Previously, Cyrium introduced the QDEC product line, to provide clients high-efficiency cost-effective cells with consistent and reproducible performance. Using Cyrium's proprietary nanotechnology, the QDEC line exceeds the performance of competing CPV cells available in the market. QDEC is the most efficient multi-junction solar cell available to commercial CPV systems manufacturers.

"ASCC enhances our value proposition and enables us to expand into more applications that utilize CPV technology," said Simon Fafard Cyrium's chief technology officer.

Further descriptions and specifications for Cyrium's ASCC and QDEC product line are detailed on the Products page of the company's website, www.cyriumtechnologies.com/products.
