Arizona State University (ASU) and Advent Solar Inc. have formed development partnership designed to further the advancement of solar photovoltaic technology. As part of the initiative, members of Arizona State University's Solar Power Laboratory will work with Advent Solar to develop solutions for improving energy harvesting of solar systems.
Advent Solar will place engineering talent at SkySong, ASU's Center for Innovation in Scottsdale. Research will focus on next-generation solar technology based upon the architectural framework provided by Advent Solar Ventura Technology. The researchers believe this technology provides the blueprint for delivering the industry's best value for silicon PV modules. Ventura Solar Technology combines the emitter-wrap through back-contact cell with monolithic module assembly.
‘ASU SkySong is a platform for stimulating economic growth through university-business partnerships, and has assisted many enterprises with finding customers and growing their network of potential new business collaborations, as well as new clients,’ says Julia Rosen, associate vice president for ASU Innovation and Entrepreneurship.
