RayGen’s mission is to deliver the most commercially attractive solar energy solution for renewable customers everywhere.
With this in mind, the RayGen team led by Dr John Lasich conceived the design for its signature, ground-breaking product, PV Ultra, the only tower-mounted concentrated photovoltaic technology available. In addition to generating the most efficient and cost-effective solar electricity, PV Ultra also delivers the lowest cost renewable heat.
Seven years after its inception, RayGen now employs 30 staff across engineering, manufacturing and sales roles to become one of the largest renewable energy manufacturers in Australia. RayGen has received various awards for its innovations in the field of solar energy, including:
- World Record for solar system efficiency of 40.4%, achieved with UNSW and accredited by NREL
- Gold Prize for the International Cleantech Cluster Awards, 2015
- Victorian Governor’s Export Award, 2015
The RayGen solar power system has already been deployed in two 200kW pilot systems and a third site will be commissioned by Q1 2018.
RayGen also has a 25MW p.a. manufacturing facility in Blackburn, Victoria (commissioned Q1 2018, currently 8MW p.a.), and an exciting future pipeline that will see the technology rolled out at industrial facilities around the world.
