CubicPV was established by Hunt Perovskite Technologies and 1366 Technologies, a US-based energy company.
The merger combines two technologies – 1366's Direct Wafer® process and HPT's printed perovskite photovoltaic (PV) technology – to bring to market tandem modules. The combined company, CubicPV, has also received $25 million in funding from Hunt Energy Enterprises, L.L.C. (HEE), First Solar, Inc. (NASDAQ: FSLR), Breakthrough Energy Ventures (BEV) and others. HEE will join the Board of Directors.
CubicPV has offices in Bedford, Massachusetts, and Dallas, Texas. The name holds significance as it reflects the shared cubic crystal structure of both silicon and perovskite.
