Business Summary: we are a Dutch start up in Concentrated Solar (CPV). We own patented technology which will make solar power affordable. Our technology is cheaper by kWh than other solar power technologies. We have planned market launch in 2014.

The Technology: we track the sun and concentrate sun light on so called III-V solar cells as used in space. III-V cells have the highest efficiency of all solar cells. Currently, efficiencies of these cells are over 44%, development promises over 50% in 2017.
We replace expensive semiconductor material by plastic. Our products can be made local and used in domestic and industrial applications. We produce electricity and hot water.
We track the sun by means of a rotating mirror and a rotating lens in fixed, non moving, flat, structure. We distinct ourselves from other CPV manufacturers who follow the sun with large moving structures.
Technical details: A SunCycle system measures 500mm diameter and produces over 50Wp electricity plus thermal energy for various applications. The system consists of injection molded components, a small III-V solar cell (purchase) and some electronics. It is easy to assemble, install and maintain.

Business Model: We identify two revenue streams – own sales and license revenues. For own sales we focus on rooftop and small domestic use in Europe – most important Southern Europe. In the ROW we aim to establish license agreements.

Go To Market Strategy: For our market launch in 2014 we have found a limited number of industrial and institutional customers who have an interest to early adapt new green technologies. Ramp up we plan from 2015 onwards. We have found risk sharing partners and have received Dutch Government and European funding for the phase towards market launch (partners: TNO, Neways, voestalpine, Radboud University)
