Shrink Nanotechnologies has formed a renewable energy team, comprised of two academic and industry collaborators, Drs. Sayantani Ghosh and Roland Winston. The team will be in charge of developing and laying out a business plan to commercialize Shrink’s OptiSo solar concentrator, a new generation disruptive nanotechnology-based plastic solar concentrator and solar film that is a first-of-its-kind in the PV industry.
“We are currently in discussions with leading solar industry companies, as well as other industry and thought leaders in the solar space in order to make our vision a reality. With the additions of Dr. Ghosh and Dr. Winston and the formation of the Renewable Energy Team, we are moving one step closer to achieving our goals and strengthening our foothold in this extremely important, and very sizeable, market,” said Mark Baum, CEO of Shrink Nanotechnologies.
