What we're about

The Electric Vehicle Entrepreneurs of Silicon Valley (EVE) is a non-profit group of peer entrepreneurs and innovators in Silicon Valley who want to participate in the design, development, and marketing of electric vehicles and electric vehicle technologies.

Anyone who is interested in creating, recruiting, or working of hot new electric vehicle startups in Silicon Valley should join this group. Also, any electric vehicle (EV) car owner in Silicon Valley is welcome to join and share ideas about what they like, and what they don’t like about their cars. Inventors and innovators are also welcome to join EVE of Silicon Valley and learn/network/and grow their ideas.

At each event, we will have a talk from a venture capitalist, start-up CEO/executive, or a Electric Vehicle expert about the latest and greatest breakthroughs in electric vehicle technology. However, a portion of time at each meeting will be reserved for networking with and meeting with peers.

Thur Nov. 21 @ 12 noon -NOVASOLIX (Larry Cook) 43% Efficient solar cells 4 EVs? --Round Table Pizza, 4400 Stevens Creek Blvd, Santa Clara, CA --$10 Flat (tax included); PIZZA/ SALAD BUFFET... (soda is extra) ---------------------Speaker Larry Cook----------------------------- Laurence H Cooke (Larry Cooke) has over 40 years experience in Electronic Design Automation, Semiconductor and Computer Systems technology, with over 35 years of management experience including over 30 years of executive experience. As an EXECUTIVE, he founded: Vertex (a fabless ASIC company, now an ASIC division of Toshiba) where he was VP of Engineering & CTO, Crosspoint Solutions (an FPGA company) where he was VP of Engineering & CTO, Chameleon Systems (a reconfigurable compute company) where he was COO, and On-Chip Technologies (an SOC verification & test company) where he was CEO & CFO. As an INNOVATOR, he is named on 94 granted US patents. Larry has a BS degree in Applied Mathematics from Stanford University. -----------------Background NOVASOLIX 43% EFFICIENT ------------ NovaSolix is developing the technology that will generate the cleanest and cheapest form of energy on Earth: rectifying antennas that convert light to electricity from the entire solar spectrum. NANOSCALE ANTENNAS NovaSolix’s carbon nanotube (CNT) antennas are small enough to match the nano-scale wavelengths of sunlight. Antennas can convert electromagnetic spectrum much more efficiently than photovoltaic (PV) cells. When perfected, NovaSolix antennas will capture far more energy from the sun, and far more efficiently, achieving near 90% efficiency (versus ~20% for PV). NANOSCALE DIODES NovaSolix has successfully manufactured the world's fastest diode – a critical component for energy conversion. NANOSCALE MANUFACTURING From the beginning, NovaSolix engineers have developed our products so that they can be manufactured using roll-to-roll advanced manufacturing techniques. At scale, these techniques insure that NovaSolix’s products will be the cheapest form of energy on Earth. WORLD'S MOST EFFICIENT SOLAR ENERGY Our solution, manufactured at scale, will enable solar energy to be produced at a cost per kWh less than fossil fuels. HOW IS THIS POSSIBLE? A HISTORY OF EXPONENTIALLY SMALLER THINGS: Antennas, diodes, and manufacturing technology have achieved exponentially smaller scales over the decades. NovaSolix is taking advantage of recent nano-scale developments in all three of these areas to create a technology that was not possible until the last few years. THE NOVASOLIX VISION How much better must a new technology be to be revolutionary? Archimedes crossed a magic line when he discovered why objects float. The Wright brothers crossed a magic line when they measured lift and drag. NovaSolix has invented a self assembling antenna array solar cell which will be 2-4 times more efficient at a less than 1/10 the cost per watt of existing solar. NovaSolix is crossing a magic line. The energy revolution is beginning.
