Business description: Innovalight is focused on bringing high efficiency, low-cost solar modules to the marketplace. Enabling this manufacturing paradigm shift is the company’s silicon ink, which has been in development since 2002. Historically, silicon has been processed either as a solid or as a gas. Using liquid based processing Innovalight will dramatically improve the cost and efficiency of today’s solar modules. The Company was recognized as a Technology Pioneer winner at the Annual Meeting of the World Economic Forum held in Davos, Switzerland and was selected by the United States Department of Energy for its 2008 PV Incubator program. The Company has been extensively profiled in Time, CNN, and other major news and industry organizations as a technology leader crusading for new, cleaner energy solutions. Innovalight is a venture capital financed company based in the heart of Silicon Valley.
