Who invented the Technology / how did it come about?

Victor Rosenberg, the CEO and Chairman of ClearVue, a businessperson and serial entrepreneur was instrumental in establishing Tropiglas Technologies Pty Ltd back in 1995. At that time, the company was dedicated to producing the world’s most efficient low-e coating to save energy in buildings. Whilst the low-e coating never achieved the companies’ aims, the core of that IP was reused in the design of a luminescent solar concentrator that could be used to redirect the unwanted UV and IR light wavelengths and harvest those wavelengths for power generation.

The core technology for the ClearVue solar concentrator built upon Tropiglas’ initial work by the team at the Electron Science Research Institute at Edith Cowan University developed and invented the current technology under a contract research arrangement such that ClearVue has guided the direction of the research for its commercial purposes and owns all the developed IP being the outcome of that research.
