Solar energy has been an important contributor to the trillion dollars per year energy market. However, the cost of harnessing the power of the sun have been too high. In 2009, the founders at UltraSolar Technolgy realized that solar energy could become the mainstream source of energy in the near future, only if the efficiency of the solar cells could be improved to bring the cost of solar energy at parity with other sources of energy. They figured that one way to increase the efficiency of solar cell was to utilize heat to generate electricity, to augment the energy generated by the solar cells. Santosh Kumar’s background in Pyroelectricity came in handy to accomplish this task. The company got very quick success with the use of Pyroelectricity but faced several hurdles during productizing the concept. Today, years of research, development and field trials has resulted in a technology that utilizes advanced concepts of physics, reduced to devices functioning in real life with proprietary methods and processes. UltraSolar technology is proud of creating the only product in the world which can boost the efficiency of solar panels in any installation!
The sun is an incredible source of energy that is renewable and can supply unlimited power to fuel life on earth. This energy is not only clean but a permanent sustainable solution. The sun’s energy can be converted into electricity through photovoltaic (PV) modules. Solar modules are highly reliable with a service life of 25+ years but the cost of installations are high. Therefore solutions need to be brought forward that increase the efficiency of ordinary PV systems and make the investment into solar modules for residential, commercial and industrial clients a profitable venture. QuantumBoost is the only solution that is cost-effective, risk-free and boosts efficiency and performance of PV panels for more than 10%. It is a small device that has been created with the intent to be installed on retrofits/repowering solar projects or integrated with PV panels by simple MC4 connections. The installation process is simple and can be carried out by the PV manufacturers or it can even be attached to the PV cables in the field after the PV plant has been commissioned. The decision to invest in QuantumBoost today, is a decision for a brighter tomorrow.
