Newsletter: XsunX CTO Robert Wendt Discusses CIGS Advanatges on MoneyTV
To Our Valued Shareholders,
As you know, Robert Wendt was promoted to chief technology officer this Spring so that XsunX could leverage his 15 years of solar thin film development and commercialization experience. As CTO, he is overseeing XsunX’s thin film technology development, product design and technology commercialization efforts. On Friday, he joined me for his first appearance on MoneyTV.
On the program, Mr. Wendt talked about CIGS (copper indium gallium selenide) manufacturing techniques, why CIGS so far has proven difficult to scale commercially while maintaining performance efficiencies, and why XsunX believes that our breakthrough manufacturing approach may provide a solution to the previous challenges. As you may know, there are a variety of technologies used to manufacture CIGS wafers, but a process called evaporation delivers the highest solar energy conversion efficiencies. We believe that an efficient evaporation source in combination with our unique manufacturing processes and equipment adapted from the HDD industry can achieve low-cost, high-rate fabrication.
I was also able to share information about the substantial market opportunities that XsunX’s new technology affords, especially as a replacement for silicon wafers – roughly 80 percent of solar panels are silicon-based – at half the cost. XsunX’s CIGS wafers could be integrated into solar panels, adapted to a variety of building materials including roofing, facades and glass, and even used in consumer products.
