Chester Aldridge Equity Solar's Chairman said: “As Equity Solar enters the commercialization phase of its business strategy, it was critical for us to have a leader of Dr. Maloney's calibre on our team. Dr. Maloney not only has a deep understanding of our processes and chemistry, but will also provide important business experience, having overseen all aspects of bringing new technologies to market.
“In addition, Dave's substantial IP background and experience will help us to properly fortify our technology portfolio as our products are adopted in the marketplace.”
Maloney said: “I am excited at the opportunity to lead the company as it enters a critical commercialization phase for its technology. The overwhelmingly positive response this technology has already received by the majority of PV manufacturers has been hugely encouraging, and I'm excited to be taking an active operating role as we go to market.”
