Revolutionizing Solar Power Use In Industrial, Commercial, Utility, And Residential Power Generation.
The Canadian Connection
Canadian company Day4 Energy’s electrode improves the efficiency of common solar cells by nearly 1 percentage point. Modules made from these cells show an increase in power of 5 to 10 percent. However under the protection of a worldwide patent, the technology cannot become widespread-that is, unless Day4 transforms into the major supplier that company executives envision.
Day 4 Energy Electrodes
Day4 Energy has developed an electrode to replace the bus bars on the front side of solar cells. Slightly modified cells are needed for this – obviously, they must not have any bus bars. But they must not have aluminum/silver pads on the backside of the cells where the bus bars are normally soldered during the regular cell connection process.
Solar Electric Technology
The core of Day4 Energy’s technological advantage is our proprietary and patented Day4 Electrode that is used to inter-connect photovoltaic (PV) cells and collects the power they generate. This technology represents a fundamental change in the way that both PV cells and PV modules are built.
