Ambient has broken ground on its Fab 1 manufacturing facility in Scotts Valley, California. The state-of-the-art, 43,000-square foot low-light solar cell manufacturing facility will be one of the largest low-light indoor energy harvesting technology factories in the world. It will house the first-ever high-volume, fully-automated production line for low-light indoor solar cells utilizing state-of-the-art equipment from Manz AG, who also serves tech, automotive and e-mobility heavyweights across the globe.
Ambient’s fully-automated production system leverages industrial printing processes to deposit its novel molecules on thin, durable glass substrates. Custom cells are swiftly deployable for integration into electronic devices at a price point for mass scale. The company expects to begin deliveries from the new factory to high-volume consumer electronics and IoT customers in the first half of next year.
Connected device manufacturers partner with Ambient to not only improve product sustainability but also address Scope 3 emissions from their supply chains.
With planned rooftop and parking canopy solar PV systems, Ambient’s manufacturing facility will also be powered by clean, renewable energy.
