The Second Annual
Stanford’s MRS chapter is planning a company visit to bay area company Solar Junction. As you may know, Solar Junction is a concentrated PV company that was founded out of Stanford a few years ago and has since set the world standard for the highest efficiency solar cells. We’re planning a visit to their location in San Jose on Wednesday, May 8th in the late afternoon (~4pm).
In order to plan this trip, we need to get an accurate sense of who is interested in going. Spaces for this trip may be very limited, so please respond accurately! If you’re interested, please fill out the two-question survey below!

By combining photovoltaic (PV) electric and solar hot water generation in a single array, Cogenra Solar® delivers clean, renewable energy more efficiently and at a lower cost than utility rates to commercial, industrial and government customers. Traditional solar panels allow most of the sun’s energy to dissipate as waste heat. Cogenra’s technology efficiently collects and delivers this energy in the form of hot water, delivering 5 times the energy output, 3 times the greenhouse gas reduction and twice the savings of standard photovoltaic panels. In addition to the unique benefit of dual energy production, solar cogeneration has a payback of less than five years, is simple to integrate into existing infrastructure and provides unparalleled environmental benefits.
Dr. Gilad Almogy brings more than a decade of experience leading global technology organizations. Prior to founding Cogenra, Dr. Almogy was a senior vice president at Applied Materials (AMAT), in charge of the Display and Thin Film Solar Products business segment. Dr. Almogy joined Applied Materials in 1997 through the acquisition of Orbot Instruments and went on to become the General Manager of its’ PDC (Process Diagnostics and Control) Business Group in 2000. Throughout his career Dr. Almogy has initiated, led the development of, and brought to market, advanced technology products generating billions of dollars in revenue.
Mr. Almogy is the inventor of over 30 registered US patents and holds a Ph.D. in Applied Physics from the California Institute of Technology and a BSc in Physics and Mathematics from the Hebrew University in Jerusalem, Israel.
