mPower Technology Inc, based in Albuquerque, is shaping the future of solar with a revolutionary new technology called DragonSCALES, a completely flexible, interconnected mesh of miniature solar cells. DragonSCALES starts with high efficiency state-of-the- art silicon cells that are the product of billions of dollars a year in R&D investment. mPower Technology collaborates with leading global research institutes to adapt mono-crystalline silicon and other advanced structures to the DragonSCALES architecture. DragonSCALES cells can be customized to any shape and size, and thus easily integrated into any design. Our approach leverages the massive scale of terrestrial silicon PV market to minimize cost, and eliminate the extremely challenging, hard-to-scale models of custom cell manufacturing. For space applications, mPower has developed fabrication approaches to maximize end-of-life performance in harsh space environments with on-orbit radiation recovery.
