Traded in other countries:A8M1.Germany,
Ascent Solar Technologies Inc was incorporated under the laws of Delaware in October 2005. The Company is a development stage company to commercialize flexible photovoltaic "PV" modules using proprietary technology. Its proprietary manufacturing process deposits multiple layers of materials, including a thin film of efficient copper-indium-gallium-diselenide semiconductor material, on a flexible, lightweight, high tech plastic substrate using a roll-to-roll manufacturing process and then laser patterns the layers to create interconnected PV cells, or PV modules, in a process known as monolithic integration. The Company is producing consumer oriented products with a focus on charging devices powered by or enhanced by its solar modules. In the specialty markets segment, its modules provides lightweight, high performance, durable power solutions for commercial transportation, automotive, aerospace, military and durable off grid solutions. Its modules provide a reliable source of renewable power in remote areas, regardless of local infrastructure. The manufacturing equipment and tools used in its production process are purchased from various suppliers in Europe, the United States and Asia. The Company competes with Mophie, Energizer, MyCharge, Tenergy, Goal Zero, Voltaic, A-Solar, Solio, PowerTraveller, Solar Components, RDK Products, Global Solar Energy, PowerFilm, Trony and more recently Alta Devices. The Company is subject to a variety of federal, state, local and foreign laws and regulations relating to the protection of the environment, including those governing the use, handling, generation, processing, storage, transportation and disposal of, or human exposure to, hazardous and toxic materials, the discharge of pollutants into the air and water, and occupational health and safety.
