Nanosolar is a leading manufacturer of cost-efficient thin film solar cells and panels.

We utilize an ‘industrial’ printing process to coat CIGS (Copper, Indium, Gallium, Selenium) and nanoparticle inks on low-cost aluminum foil in order to enable the world’s thinnest solar cells and lowest-cost solar panels.

The Nanosolar Utility Panel is specifically designed to reduce installation and balance of system costs.

With headquarters and solar cell manufacturing based in San Jose, California and an automated panel assembly facility outside Berlin, Germany, Nanosolar is building an effective global distribution network to deliver cost-efficient solar power.

Nanosolar is led by a world-class management team and backed by leading cleantech investors and renewable energy generators including Benchmark Capital, Mohr Davidow Ventures, Energy Capital Partners, EDF Energies Nouvelles and AES Solar.


A Green Company

We continually strive to reduce the environmental impact of our research, development and engineering processes, and the carbon footprint of the solar cells and panels we manufacture.

The end-to-end lifecycle footprint of a Nanosolar Utility Panel is among the lowest in the solar industry for both Carbon Dioxide and toxic emissions, and the energy payback time of our solar cells and panels is less than eight months. Nanosolar is also committed to recycling both office and manufacturing waste at all of our facilities.
