Cleantech – Solar PV
Voltiq acted as seed-investor in SolarExcel, alongside among others the Province of Limburg and several other investors.
SolarExcel had been working on a light trapping textured polymeric sheet material that could be laminated to the top glass used in PV modules, both crystalline and thin-film. The sheet virtually eliminates reflection and therefore increases the output of solar modules substantially.
SolarExcel has been acquired in March 2013 by major industrial materials firm Royal DSM for an undisclosed sum. Voltiq advised SolarExcel on solar market dynamics since 2009, and also held a small stake in the company. SolarExcel is nowadays integrated into DSM Advanced Surfaces, part of the DSM Innovation Center.contact us for more information
