HPQ Silicon provided its shareholders with an early Christmas present this year when it announced a major partnership with Apollon Solar, private French company that has become one of the world’s leaders in renewable energies. More than just lip service, the following indicates that HPQ has obtained a world-class solar partner:

” [Apollon Solar] Has obtained, with the ANU (Australian National University) and independently confirmed by Fraunhofer ISE, a world record conversion efficiency of 21.1% with monocrystalline ingots, for a solar cell made with “SoG Si UMG”.

The importance of this partnership can not be overstated and can be summarized in two important points:

1. Validation – Prior to entering into this partnership, Apollon Apollon completed a technological audit of HPQ’s PUREVAP™ process and determined that success at the scaling up stage will lead to the production of solar quality silicon at a significantly lower cost compared to current market competitors.

2. Development – As if HPQ Silicon didn’t already have a powerhouse partner in Pyrogenesis Canada, Apollon’s abilities will be added to the team for the purposes of carrying HPQ Silicon all the way to the production of high performance multi-crystalline and monocrystalline solar cells.

The combination sets up HPQ for an exciting 2018 – and after going into a self-imposed “communications blackout” for reasons that have now become happily apparent, nobody wants to talk about this more than HPQ CEO, Bernard Tourillon.

Watch and learn about the company most likely to become a market darling in 2018.
