Swift Solar’s international team (its founders are from the Netherlands, Austria, Australia, the United Kingdom, and the United States) has invented new technology using perovskite. Perovskite is a cheap and plentiful light-absorbing mineral that can be more efficient, more affordable, and more scalable than solar technologies in use today.

Motivated by the need to address the challenges of climate change, the company is well-positioned to initially serve high-value markets such as aerospace, electric vehicles and telecommunications. If successful, it could bring the lowest-cost source of zero-carbon electricity to the world.

As one of the largest Australian investors in venture capital, Hostplus has invested in projects like Swift Solar that aim to build more efficient and more affordable solar products.1
