Konarka Technologies, Inc. Company Profile
Konarka Technologies had a future so bright, it's had to use shades. The company (named after the Konarka temple of sun worship in Orissa, India) made flexible, thin-film photovoltaic materials that can be used to convert both indoor and outdoor light into electrical energy. Its technology enabled solar panels to be made from flexible plastic sheets called Power Plastic, that was produced at a lower cost using existing coating and printing equipment. The company sold to partners who incorporated the material into consumer products such as tents and backpacks, window shades, and roofs. Konarka filed for chapter 7 bankruptcy in mid-2011. It ceased operations and a trustee is liquidating its assets.
