Semprius to exhibit new solar technology at 2012 democratic national convention

Semprius, the world record holder for photovoltaic module conversion efficiency and the first company to covert over one-third of the sun’s energy into electricity, has developed a new solar module with unique branding potential.

Semprius, Inc., an innovator in high concentration photovoltaic (HCPV) solar modules, will display a new branding application for its world record 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.

“We are excited about the prospect of infusing the world’s highest efficiency solar module with graphical design elements”.

Semprius’ technology begins with its proprietary micro-transfer printing process, enabling the company to use the world’s smallest solar cell – approximately the size of a pencil point – to manufacture modules with unmatched performance and cost advantages.

In addition to supporting large-scale power generation projects, Semprius also possesses the exclusive ability to incorporate graphics into its modules. Semprius’ new “Marquee” design will be demonstrated at the 2012 Democratic National Convention, installed by Charlotte-based Argand Energy Solutions, highlighting the ability to incorporate corporate logos into Semprius solar arrays of any size.

“We are excited about the prospect of infusing the world’s highest efficiency solar module with graphical design elements,” said Russ Kanjorski, Vice President of Business Development. “Incorporating virtually any image into our solar modules without impacting performance offers tremendous potential for a variety of branding and promotional activities.” Semprius has filed patents around this concept and 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 Mayor Foxx’s Legacy Projects, which include efforts to support energy, technology, and sustainability.

Semprius is ramping up its North Carolina manufacturing facilities to support large-scale, cost-competitive solar electricity projects around the world.
