GreenVolts, PV technology development and commercialization company has brought in Wayne Miller as Vice President of Engineering to head the product development efforts as the company focuses on further innovation and commercialization of its CPV system.
Miller has 20 years of experience in designing solar and high technology products, working previously as Vice President of Product and BOS (Balance of System) Engineering at Solyndra where he led the company’s product development and field operations team for their non-penetrating cylindrical CIGs thin film solar module.
He also built and led the engineering team at SolFocus where he was responsible for the development of the company’s original concentrating photovoltaic system. Prior to this Miller spent 15 years designing products for high volume production at a number of global technology leading companies, including Credence Systems, Apple Computers, In Focus Systems and AT&T Bell Labs.
“Wayne’s decades of experience in product development will help further improve our CPV system as we bring the technology to market,” said Gary Beasley, president and CEO of GreenVolts. “We are thrilled to have such an acknowledged talent leading a growing team of world class engineers from a wide variety of disciplines and industries. As an organization, GreenVolts has nearly doubled in size in the last six months.”
Miller holds 19 patents and has led design on nine products that have been awarded International Design Excellence Awards while at Apple, Credence Systems, and In Focus Systems. He holds a B.S. and M.S. in Mechanical Engineering from Northeastern University.
“I am inspired by the culture of innovation at GreenVolts and by the team assembled to realize this vast opportunity,” said Mr. Miller. “I look forward to leveraging my experience in photovoltaics and technology development to help design and commercialize GreenVolts’ next generation CPV system. We intend to push the conversion efficiency, energy density and material conservation advantages that concentrating photovoltaics has over all other solar technologies even further.”
