New frontiers in green solar manufacturing

Making photovoltaics the cheapest form of renewable energy

NexWafe’s breakthrough manufacturing process delivers an unmatched competitive advantage to our partners, delivering high efficiency, low cost, green photovoltaic wafers.

We're striving to set a new standard for the future of photovoltaic wafer production. The need for efficient, affordable and cleanly produced solar technology has never been greater – we're rising to meet that challenge.

We have our roots in research carried out at the acclaimed Fraunhofer Institute For Solar Energy Systems.

A path to record-beating efficiency

EpiNex™ wafers are manufactured with precise thickness tolerances, using NexWafe’s multi-patented proprietary process. They offer high-efficiency, fully compatible drop-in replacements for cells produced by today’s high-efficiency HJT, Topcon and IBC manufacturing processes.

NexWafe has successfully demonstrated a world record-beating ability to detach 50 micron wafers – roughly the diameter of a human hair, and less than one third the thickness produced by conventional processes.

By 2024, we're on track to start high volume manufacturing of ultra-thin wafers, less than 90 microns in thickness.
