Barry N. Breen, CEO, 3GSolar Photovoltaics Ltd Mr. Breen is CEO of 3GSolar, a leading developer of photovoltaic energy using printed DSC (dye solar cell) technology. Barry is a business leader and manufacturing process expert. He excelled during 16 years in senior positions at the AVX Corporation thin film plant, leading development to build a small R&D facility into a 600 person research and manufacturing company. Barry led development of many thin-film products including RF capacitors, inductors, couplers, filters, matching units and fuses. Prior to AVX, Barry was an engineer at General Electric designing components for the USA nuclear navy. A native of St. Louis, Missouri USA, Barry earned his degree in Nuclear Engineering from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. He has authored numerous papers and patents. Barry won the coveted Kaplan Prize for industrial innovation and the Kyocera Corporation President’s Award for outstanding achievement in product & business development. Title of lecture: Powering IoT with Light Abstract For electronics companies that are manufacturing devices and sensors for a wireless world, 3GSolar DSC is a miniature PV cell that charges electronics from indoor light. The devices will have an integrated source of power with no need for changing or charging batteries. Unlike silicon cells that perform poorly indoors, 3GSolar DSC shows exceptional efficiency and power using fluorescent and LED lighting. 3GSolar technology allows for a low-cost printing process in both glass and ultrathin formats with possibilities of color and transparency for aesthetic integration into IoT and other wireless products. The 3GSolar energy solution is based on photoactive dyes, creating a photovoltaic cell that supplies energy under conditions where others cannot. The 3GSolar DSC can be applied in many electronics markets including Wireless Sensor Networks, Medical and Sports devices, Security sensors and cameras, Agriculture monitors, Beacons and electronic signs, Computer peripherals, and Wearable electronics (bracelets, watches, armbands, etc.). It is the ideal energy solution for the Internet of Things where billions of devices and sensors are connected to the internet by low power wireless chipsets.
