The company was founded in 2005 to facilitate the commercial exploitation of intellectual property (IP) and know-how related to novel and innovative semiconductor process technologies in the field of thin film photovoltaic (PV) technologies.

The new and improved PV technology has been developed over a period of more than 20 years at the Department of Physics at the University of Johannesburg. The company has recently entered into strategic partnerships with various departments of the South African Government in order to establish a world-leading PV manufacturing and demonstration facility at Technopark in Stellenbosch. The facility is designed to facilitate the development and transfer of commercially scalable production processes, products and know-how to commercial partners under license.

The key strategic objective of the company is the development of a highly trained and professional PV workforce in South Africa that will form a basis for the establishment of a competitive local PV industry. The PV modules with a local content above 80% are ideally suited for applications in residential, commercial and utility-scale projects.
