Solarmer Energy, Inc. is developing flexible, translucent, light weight plastic solar cells which generate cost-effective, clean energy from the sun. Solarmer’s plastic solar cells will create new markets that are currently not addressable with conventional silicon solar cell technology. The first major applications for this technology will likely be portable digital electronic devices (such as cell phones and laptops) and outdoor lifestyle applications. Building Integrated Photovoltaics, Smart Fabrics, and Smart-Networks will soon follow. The company was founded in 2006 to commercialize technology first developed at UCLA.
