Tarpon Solar develops Flexible Solar Canvas

Founding Year: 2016
Location: Aurskog-Høland, Norway
Funding: undisclosed
Partner for: Solar Tents

Norwegian startup Tarpon Solar offers flexible solar canvas. The startup uses membrane technology with laminated cloth and thin-film flexible solar cells. This reduces material requirements during manufacturing and ensures a shorter energy payback period as compared to traditional solar panels. The startup’s solar membranes are light and strong, as well as provide protection against sun, wind, and rain. As a result, it finds use in outdoor restaurants, refugee camps, and warehouse buildings.

Glass to Power provides Solar Concentrating Glasses

Founding Year: 2016
Location: Milano, Italy
Funding: USD 2,78 M
Partner for: Chromophore-based Solar Concentrators

Glass to Power is an Italian startup that develops solar concentrating glasses. The startup’s Luminescent Solar Concentrators (LSCs) are transparent plates of plastic material doped with chromophores which improve the energy conversion efficiency of solar panels. These chromophores absorb sunlight and re-emit photons with a longer wavelength, thereby harvesting energy from a large spectral range. The double glazing on these plates also provides acoustics and thermal insulation. The panels are fit for use in urbanized areas where roof surfaces are not sufficient for the production of all the required electricity.

Solivus makes Curved Solar Panels

Founding Year: 2016
Location: London, UK
Funding: USD 1,47 M
Partner for: Aesthetic Solar Panels

British startup Solivus manufactures unique curved solar panels that capture maximum solar energy while providing visually striking alternatives for roof-mounted solar. The startup’s panel, Solivus Arc, features thin-film, ultra-lightweight, and fully recyclable organic solar cells. The layered fabric is bent into shapes or glued onto surfaces where the use of heavy solar panels may damage the integrity of buildings. Moreover, these panels do not contain any rare-earth materials, resulting in a very small carbon footprint.

Rayleigh Solar Tech offers Printed Perovskite Solar Cells

Founding Year: 2016
Location: Halifax, Canada
Funding: undisclosed
Partner for: Solar Coating, Solar Panels for Cars

Canadian startup Rayleigh Solar Tech produces roll-to-roll printed flexible perovskite solar cells. The startup utilizes a mixture of inorganic and organic compounds to produce these cells using low-cost manufacturing techniques. The resulting solar cells are ultra-thin, lightweight, and manufactured at low temperatures as compared to traditional solar panels. The flexibility of these solar cells enables their use on curved surfaces of electric or hybrid vehicles, reducing grid dependency.

Edgehog manufactures Anti-Reflection Solar Panels

Founding Year: 2019
Location: Atasehir, Turkey
Funding: USD 1,9 M
Partner for: Space-based Solar

Edgehog is a Turkish startup that makes anti-reflection solar glass. These glasses are omnidirectional and facilitate super-transmission across the entire spectrum at all angles. Therefore, they harvest the solar energy that is otherwise lost due to reflection. Furthermore, the surface of glasses is hydrophobic in nature thereby self-clean debris and water spots. Edgehog’s solutions benefit small satellites which are dependent on solar energy but are unable to track the sun.
