Venture Profile: SunFlake A/S
SunFlake's nano flakes have the potential to convert up to 30 per cent of the solar energy into electricity. Each flake has a perfect crystalline structure and the flakes in combination have a structure that absorbs all light.
CEO: Martin Aagesen
Location: Copenhagen, Denmark
Venture is: Seed Level
Properties that may be form the basis for the perfect solar cell. SunFlake believes the potential is unmistakable since the technology also reduces production costs because less expensive semi conducting silicon is used in the process due to the use of nanotechnology. At the same time, the flake structure exploits the solar energy better as the distance of energy transportation in the solar cell is shorter and thus lessens the loss of energy.
With a proven technology ready and parameters such as expected $/kWh, development cost, and time to market theoretically qualified, SunFlake plans to raise capital that will help the company take the technology from patent to product.
SunFlake A/S will present in CleanTech Ventures 2008, co-located with NSTI Nanotech June 2-5.
