Semprius today announced it will display a new branding application for its high concentration photovoltaic solar module technology at Duke Energy’s exhibit in the Legacy Village at CarolinaFest, which runs in conjunction with the 2012 Democratic National Convention in Charlotte, North Carolina (US).
Semprius’ module technology begins with its proprietary micro-transfer printing process, enabling the company to use a tiny solar cell, approximately the size of a pencil point, to manufacture modules. In addition to supporting large-scale power generation projects, Semprius can also incorporate graphics into its modules.
Semprius will demonstrate this at the 2012 Democratic National Convention with its new Marquee design, which incorporates Duke Energy's corporate logo into the Semprius solar array.
Semprius has filed patents around this concept and says it intends to offer it commercially beginning in 2013.
CarolinaFest is the kick-off to the 2012 Democratic National Convention. The Legacy Village, located adjacent to the Harvey B. Gantt Center, will highlight Charlotte Mayor Anthony Foxx’s Legacy Projects, which include efforts to support energy, technology and sustainability.
Semprius is currently ramping up its North Carolina manufacturing facilities to support large-scale, cost-competitive solar electricity projects around the world.
