NexWafe Expands Board to Broaden World Supply of Eco-friendly Silicon Wafer Technologies

Business veteran Thomas Koerner will assist corporation break into Asian photovoltaic market place

NexWafe GmbH today declared Thomas Koerner has joined the company’s board of administrators. With just about two many years of knowledge in the worldwide photo voltaic business, Koerner brings a must have know-how to NexWafe in the spots of world wide marketing and business progress, specifically in the Asian market.

NexWafe just lately concluded a €10 million spherical of funding supposed to support go the corporation into pilot creation and further than. The groundbreaking company employs a proprietary environmentally friendly silicon producing course of action that is entirely appropriate with regular photo voltaic mobile production to develop ultra-slim, large-performance, monocrystalline silicon wafers. With local weather change a top priority among entire world leaders and carbon taxes on the horizon, NexWafe’s technologies is developed to decrease carbon dioxide emissions made through the manufacture of silicon wafers whilst concurrently reducing value and raising performance.

“Thomas provides additional depth and diversity to our leadership team at NexWafe,” commented Davor Sujita, CEO. “His knowledge in establishing enterprise interactions in China and somewhere else in Asia will be priceless to our efforts in those vital markets. We search ahead to getting him on the NexWafe group.”

An impassioned advocate for the photo voltaic field, Koerner is currently Company Vice President of World wide Income at Canadian Solar, where he has been used considering the fact that 2012. Prior to joining Canadian Solar, which is just one of the prime 6 photo voltaic cell/module manufacturers in the entire world, Koerner held govt positions with Astronergy, Heliatek, and Schüco Intercontinental KG.

“NexWafe’s organization product is to develop up coming-technology silicon wafers with its very own manufacturing technological innovation and request lively partnerships with companies that can adopt the company’s approach,” explained Koerner. “By strategic partnerships in Asia and other important rising marketplaces, NexWafe will be well positioned to positively impact the value-down roadmap of the photovoltaic industry and provide us to net-zero by 2030. I am delighted that I will be ready to lead to this vital mission.”

Prior to his new posture on NexWafe’s board of administrators, Koerner served as a board member for SEIA, the Solar Strength Industries Affiliation, and eNow, Inc., a supplier of cellular solar applications for industrial and leisure vehicles.
