QD Solar is developing the next generation photovoltaic cells using cutting edge colloidal quantum dot technology. The solar photovoltaic market is one of the fastest growing energy markets in the world, despite the tremendous recent shakeout in the industry. Bloomberg, among others, predicts the solar power industry growing by a factor of 10 by 2030. That growth will occur even as price reductions for crystalline silicon cells slow in the next 5 years. In order for solar energy to succeed in developed markets new technology is needed that can deliver higher efficiencies and lower costs than the today’s standard silicon. Manufacturers seek to differentiate their product by delivering better performance for the same or lower cost.
