Solargise is a technology-focused manufacturing and utility-scale power project development company created to take advantage of the global solar build-out as solar energy becomes the mainstream source of power generation.
The scope of work of the research and development agreement includes the development of new technologies using graphite and graphene to improve and augment the efficiency of the solar photovoltaic panels manufactured by Solargise.
Comments by Troy Grant, Chief Executive Officer of Elcora: “Solargise is one of the leading solar energy companies in the world with offices all over the globe. We are truly excited that Solargise chose Elcora to work on this world class project. This agreement demonstrates the benefit of Elcora’s commitment over the last few years to research and development in the graphene and graphite sector. Our core competency is the ability to refine graphite with a much higher yield of graphene. The Elcora team is now composed of the best process, research and development people both in graphite and graphene. Elcora is at the forefront of the rapidly growing solar energy market which I believe will have a global impact.”
