“Why do solar cells need to be flat?”
Sphelar – the spherical solar cells – was created in response to simple questions like this.
Light does not fall in a uniform manner in the natural world.
The position of the sun is constantly moving. Some of the sunlight are dispersed by clouds and others are reflected of glass and water. Spherical solar cells more effectively take in all kinds of light and make solar energy closer to our life.
With micro spherical solar cells, you can embed solar cells into everyday products.
With micro spherical solar cells, you can also use curved and three dimensional surfaces, not just flat surfaces.
With micro spherical solar cells, you can enjoy the light shining through your window while generating electricity.
Sunshine doesn’t only hit rooftops and deserts. Sphelar Power is aiming for solutions to expand the usage of solar cells alongside many partners.
Sphelar – spherical solar cells – bringing solar energy closer to you.
Message from the President
Kyosemi has been working on spherical solar cells since 1995. In order to continue this work, we have established Sphelar Power Inc. through a company split and created plans to accelerate and strengthen our work in this field.
Our solar cells have an entirely spherical light-absorbing surface, making three-dimensional light-absorption possible for the first time ever in the world. We use micro spherical cells of 1-2mm in diameter and offer a variety of modules with sizes from miniscule to large and forms from see-through to three-dimensional. Further, by completely embedding our micro spherical cells into other parts and materials we have realized unique, high-value, high-function products such as high transparent building-integrated photovoltaic (BIPV) products.
We truly hope to devote all of our energies to the creation of a society based on renewable energy with the unique Sphelar technology. We hope to continue to have the generous support and understanding of our customers.
