Konarka Technologies, Business of the Year
Enterprise Bank CEO Blog - May 17th, 2010
In an age when cost-efficient and environmentally friendly energy sources are at the forefront of scientific research, Konarka Technologies, one of Enterprise Bank’s 2010 Business of the Year recipients, defines the term “going green.”
In its nine years of existence, Konarka has transformed from a research lab into the leader in OPV technology. This cutting-edge solar technology converts light into an affordable and renewable energy source. Konarka’s staple product, known as Power Plastic, concert light into energy that can be used immediately or stored for later use.
The portable nature of Konarka’s new energy initiatives not only supports the “going green” movement in its possible applications, but also offers energy solutions to areas of the globe struggling with affordable energy.
In addition to their extraordinary accomplishments in business and global energy, Konarka has helped to improve the lives of those in need. Following the 2009 earthquake in Haiti, Konarka provided 100 solar panels to Partners in Health doctors and nurses.
