Mr. Langmo was also a founding partner and CEO of Novus Energy Partners, from which company Voltaix has recently received an investment worth $9 million.

Following his co-founding of REC in 1994, Langmo played a major role in establishing REC as a well-known integrated solar energy company. Reidar holds an M.Sc. from the Norwegian University of Science and Technology.

The $9 million investment will be used to continue development of Voltaix’s manufacturing capabilities to meet growing demand for thin film-based solar power and advanced CPU and DRAM products.
