Scaling perovskites like never before.

Perovskites offer the most promising solar cell technology to date. Our team is dedicated to removing obstacles to commercialization, scaling up production quickly, and making a significant contribution to combating climate change.

Our Story

Making a difference, together.

From curiosity in the lab to having nationwide partners, Verde is driving transformative change.
Our journey started with a scientific curiosity about perovskites. Today, our mission is to make a global impact by harnessing the power of perovskite solar cells to drive the renewable energy revolution. Our nationwide efforts are propelling us closer to achieving this goal.

Our Mission

Our mission is to fight climate change by using perovskites. We are making solar panels that will be accessible for all and better for our planet.

Our Mission

Our vision is to produce perovskite panels at a large scale. Having perovskite panels will revolutionize the solar industry and change the renewable energy space.
