Company Overview
The Next Generation of Solar

Redefining the Solar Industry

Redefining the Solar IndustryNanoFlex Power Corporation develops advanced solar technologies that enable high performance thin films for ubiquitous solar power. Our technologies have the potential to enable new solar applications and unlock new markets, such as mobile power and building-integrated photovoltaics (BIPV), that are currently not well-served by today’s solar technologies.

Through our groundbreaking research, NanoFlex Power Corporation is ushering in the next generation of solar power technology. With a focus on efficiency, flexibility, durability, we have developed technologies and processes that completely alter the traditional approach to solar energy. What once was fixed, heavy, rigid, and costly, will become mobile, lightweight, flexible, and inexpensive. This will open the door to a host of new solar applications, as well as create opportunities to improve upon the current ones. We aim to change the way the world uses solar energy.

Gatekeeper of Solar Technologies

NanoFlex's 25 years of sponsored research programs with the University of Southern California (USC), the University of Michigan (UM), and Princeton have resulted in an extensive intellectual property portfolio. NanoFlex has suspended research with USC and UM and shifted its investment from research into commercialization efforts with our first commercial partners.

NanoFlex's sponsored research programs with the University of Southern California, the University of Michigan, and Princeton have resulted in an intellectual property portfolio consisting of more than 200 issued or pending patents worldwide and we are constantly looking to extend and strengthen our intellectual property portfolio. NanoFlex is now moving out of the basic research phase and into commercialization of its technologies with partners as well as its own product development, manufacturing, and marketing resources.



Nanoflex is led by a word-class team of executives and scientists. We combine strong scientific and technological know-how with seasoned business acumen in order to drive results.
