Why would I want to invest in this company Quantum Materials Corp – QTMM?

November 23, 2009

Did you know McDonalds was going to become, or Microsoft was going to become, or QVC was going to become the household names they did?  How could you have known they were destined to be staples of the American economy? Everyone has hind sight but few have foresight. If only I had a way or someone to direct me on how to identify a unique growth business poised to dominate a mass market. I don’t have a crystal ball but I can tell you to read and you may start to get the picture of the future.

Steve Squires is QTMM/Solterra Renewable Technologies, Inc.’s CEO. This is his take on the future of Quantum Dots & Solar power from Quantum Dots, look at the Oct. 2009 issue, pages 56, 57 & 58   Use the “zoom ” feature on the bottom of the page to see clearer text. This is a visionary article.

What he doesn’t tell you is there is a lot more potential from Medical http://investorshub.advfn.com/boards/read_msg.aspx?message_id=43821676, Waste Heat Recovery (Could be as big as solar) http://investorshub.advfn.com/boards/read_msg.aspx?message_id=43767056, Biotechnology, Semiconductor http://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2009/04/090401102946.htm, Optoelectronics, Military and Aerospace research fields and finally, OLED/LED’s http://news.prnewswire.com/DisplayRe…5066582&EDATE= . What was that about identifying a unique growth business poised to dominate a mass market?

AND the (now not so) latest update 12-2-09 is Dr. Bob Glass joins Solterra as CTO to assist in taking this Quantum Dot & Solar company with its developing array of products into the future. http://twitter.com/drbob999  Dr. Glass has EXACTLY what this company needed as a startup. STARTUP EXPERIENCE and TECHNICAL KNOWLEDGE. Director of Science at Sun Microsystems in the 90’s the technology he talked about then is the reality that SOLTERRA has today!  Dr. Glass is no charlatan, as CTO he is bringing a wealth of corporate development experience with him. Check out the company web site EOU.COM.  http://www.eou.com/aboutbob.html

This was my take months ago before the name change and still is, only with a more solid foundation,  ,  QTMM is to be a global play that will pay

Why is Solar going to EXPLODE?

Wind Power’s Weird Effect
http://bit.ly/TjKZS or 

http://www.forbes.com/free_forbes/2009/0907/outfront-energy-exelon-wind-powers-weird-effect.html?partner=yahoomag

This wind power article identifies benefits most people don’t know about. Renewable energy gets a federal tax credit of 2.1 cents per kilowatt-hour even if there is no one to sell it too! How great is that!
Why is that good? Solterra Renewable Technologies (Ticker QTMM) solar cells will generate 24/7 maximizing power during the day when it is needed most and minimized at night but still generating and get the 2.1 cent subsidy. The new Quantum Dot solar cell will replace the silicon wafer solar cell to allow solar to achieve grid parity. The new proprietary Quantum Dot technology is more economical, more energy efficient, has a broader spectral performance and Solterra reduced the cost of Quantum Dot production by more than 90%. The new solar cells will not need water for a cooling source. They can be placed close to the transmission lines as they are not dependent on specific windy locations since the Sun is everywhere. They will cost less than the wind turbine start up investment and solar power is more environmentally friendly, particularly for the birds and much quieter too.  Recently the laws have been changing from the individual states to the Federal Government. Rebate programs, net metering, incentives programs designed to stimulate the economy from individual homes to businesses have been enacted or are planned but they won’t have a critical mass type on impact that the following will.  Prior to 2008 utilities were not allowed to directly benefit from federal solar tax credits. They were the ones being forced to buy the power from the independant providers when it wasn’t needed and you and I would be the ones paying for it.   When Congress extended those credits in 2008 they changed who could benefit to include electicity providers. Now that utilities do qualify and can cost-effectively build, own and operate their own solar farms and arrays the picture has changed. For two years the utilities have been looking but unwilling to cut into their profits to build costly solar projects. With the price of solar coming down for silicon they still haven’t made grid parity pricing yet and will continue to need significant government support as they do in Germany to build their projects. But that is about to change in the very near future. Solterra Renewable Technologies, Inc. is using Quantum Materials Corporations revolutionary Tetrapod Quantum Dots to replace the high cost silicon wafer based solar cell with low cost flexible TQ-Dot solar cells.  The icing on the cake is Solterra will mass produce the revolutionary solar cells in the GIGAWATT capacity, not in years, or months but in weeks. Capacities that the utilities can relate to. Following history the greedy oil speculators and producers will keep prices at levels conducive to renewables gaining significant market share. That is why Solar is going to explode with QTMM/Solterra Solar cells making it happen with their Quantum Dot technology.

QTMM – RE-INVENTING Solar with Solterra Renewable Technologies

June 15, 2009

UPDATE – The references to the company name Hague, ticker – HGUE  were changed in April 2010 to Quantum Materials Corp, ticker – QTMM  

Whether you’re in college starting to invest or an old time investor, Solterra should be in your portfolio as they develop into a market leader for the Solar and Nanotechnology Industry! The reason I say that is from an article written by Jennifer Ouellette in Artificial atoms illuminate biotechnology and other fields. Her closing paragraph is: “Exactly where quantum dots will find their biggest commercial breakthrough remains to be seen, but the initial biotech applications will surely pave the way for others. And for those engaged in their sale and manufacture, there is no denying their market potential. “I think we are on the verge of a commercial breakthrough similar to what polymers did to the plastics industry,” says Talbot. “This material has so many different uses that it could be a fundamental new material system for a whole host of products that touch on almost all major areas of modern life.” Solterra is economically producing these Quantum Dots and making them available for research in various industries. http://en.wordpress.com/tag/quantum-dots-for-sale/

I’ve been researching this company for several months now and it is still not on the radar screen while they execute their business plan and build infrastructure. HGUE is a good risk to rewards ratio investment that you have to at least consider as an investor. At .10 cents it’s pretty much a no brainer that a little money goes a long way to securing a potentially very nice return!  The first half of the year they kept a low profile for some reason without announcing they had made significant progress. That changed when they broke the silence with press releases that started on 6-4-09, 6-10-09,  6-16-09,  etc. Before that there was only an ASU press release about Solterra and Nitto Denko that Solterra never mentions. You can now see from the press releases this company has the right products and management to blossom into one of those companies that raises the phrase, “If only I knew”. Well consider yourself advised and do your DD. This emerging market leader (HGUE – Solterra Renewable Technologies, Inc.) is a company with unique value propositions to set it apart. It is in the forefront of the new Flexible Solar Power Industry that will replace the silicon wafer-based solar cell industry. Now that they’ve announced they are spinning off Solterra from HAGUE and are persuing  involvement with the European Supergrid Initiative it should be even more interesting!  See 6-10-09 and 6-16-09  press releases.

Since June, Hague has continued to move forward. They announced additional ventures on July 27, 2009 covering screen-printing techniques for the fabrication of organic light emitting diodes. August they announced they are going to use the Access2flow production process to allow commercial manufacturing of Quantum Dots. September 17th they presented their business plan to Venture Capitalists at the 7th Annual Rice Alliance Energy & Clean Technology Venture Forum at Rice University.  November 9th & 10th they are presenting in Saudi Arabia at the Kingdom Project Expansion & Investment Summit.

Solterra is embarking on its journey into the fast path of technology leadership as a market leader in Solar and Quantum Dot production.  CEO Stephen Squires has taken two of the top research scientists in their fields and combined their innovative scientific contributions to create the next generation of solar cells for the industry. DR Jabbour at ASU is working on the light weight thin film panel sheets that will make unrealistic pipe dreams economically possible using the Quantum Dots Dr. Wong developed at Rice University. Solar as we know it today isn’t going to be leading any charge in the future, the future is in the economical mass production of Tetrapod Quantum Dots like Solterra is developing. This nanotechnology will lead the 2010 and on revolution in the Solar applications. Solar power production 24/7 (yes at night) is the future. Silicon cells haven’t produced energy in the infrared and ultraviolet range which these extended spectrum Quantum Dots do. Is the future bright for Solar? For the investors and companies engaged in the next generation of products for solar it is very bright I believe.

Solterra is the only public traded company with this innovative technology that private investors can BUY at a reasonable price. First Solar is out of touch price wise and Solyndra, Heliovolt, Nanosolar, and Kanarka are private companies only institutions can invest in. They all have state of the art equipment with less of a quality Quantum Dot and have received massive institutional funding. The people in the know, know there is money to be made in the Solar Industry, not to mention the potential market for organic light emitting diode displays alone is estimated to exceed $4.5 billion, according to Global Industry Analysts, Inc..

I first checked Solterra out when I was in Phoenix for my daughters wedding on 2-14-09 to confirm the reality and feasibility of this company. I work too hard for my money to throw it away. I don’t work for, nor am I affiliated with Solterra. I bought shares of their stock only and would like to introduce others to their potential. My enthusiasm and comments don’t necessarily represent management’s views, I think their views would be a little more biased.  Again, do your own DD to confirm mine. The costs to install solar systems is what Solterra is helping reduce to the tune of 90% less for the solar cells. This innovative and much more profitable Quantum Dot technology is replacing the silicon wafer-based solar cell industry. Solterra has extraordinary potential given the product addresses medical industry needs as well and is not limited to just the solar arena. Quantum Dots are also used in the Semiconductor Quantum Dot (SQD) industry, Optoelectronics, Military and Aerospace research fields but that is not Solterra’s focus right now.  Solterra is concentrating on the Solar field that is in the process of being spun off from the HAGUE Corp. The Hague Corp will be the Quantum Dot manufacturer, maybe one of these others will be an off shoot division in the future too. That off shoot consideration happened July 27. 2009 as stated in the press release. The Quantum Dots stability and reproducibility at a significant cost reduction with the high quality Tetrapods developed by Dr. Wong is their foundation. The beauty of this is the application of the Quantum Dot to produce the flexible solar sheet is by a modified ink jet printer!  Solterra’s QD ink for jetting machinery and the flexible sheet are two of the innovative developments for the next generation of low cost efficient power and the beginning of the Flexible Solar Power Industry. Now in addition, the Organic LED / OLED based displays have the potential to be manufactured by HGUE using very high volume, low cost roll-to-roll print processing on inexpensive substrates.

Billions will be allocated and made during the transition from oil to alternative energy sources and Solterra will be one of the significant contributors as a market leader. The Nuclear Energy Institute (NEI) recently published an article stating that from the expected growth for electric power (even with the economical down turn) they project by 2030 the nuclear utility industry will have to increase by 25% to meet demand and that an additional 6.7% will be from renewable energies. I work in the nuclear industry and can tell you the last plant built to come online was in 1990. NOT one nuclear plant has been built in the US since for commercial power production. Our company went from leading, to a wait and see for new next generation nuclear construction. 25% has to come from somewhere! More good news for Solterra is the North Carolina Senate passed Bill 3 (SB-3 as will many other states) requiring by 2018 that utilities have 10% of their energy generated from renewable energies such as Solar, wind, geothermal, etc.. Thus the requirement to either purchase more costly power from other suppliers or build generating units. The Bad News – YOU HAVE TO PAY for it whether you like it or not, even though they could sell you lower cost fossil fuel generated electricity. Jones-Onslow EMC in North Carolina has in their letter “Purchasing renewable energy is approximately 2 to 3 times more expensive than traditional generation and developing and implementing energy efficient programs will require additional capital investments.” The Good News is Solterra Renewable Technologies is making Solar power affordable with their highly advanced Nanocrystal Quantum Dots technology in their Thin Film Photovoltaic Solar Cell flexible sheets. Also, in light of the recent political changes SOLAR has become the main stream choice since the Nuclear path has been set back with the loss of Federal funding for Yucca Mountain as a depository for waste fuel. Wind power is not economical on a cost basis and startup costs are more than fossil fuel generators. Besides from noise and eye pollution the blades are an environmental hazard to the birds when the wind is blowing. Hydrogen fuel cells and ocean waves – that stuff is a long way off before it can be widely used, and most of the companies developing the technologies are small and hard to invest in. Solterra’s continued execution of their vision and plan will benefit the environment and those that invest. This stock is a global play that will pay!!!

Re-inventing Solar

April 19, 2009

UPDATE – The company name Hague, ticker – HGUE  was changed in April 2010 to Quantum Materials Corp, ticker – QTMM the parent company of Solterra Renewable Technologies, Inc.

Welcome to Solterra Renewable Techologies, Inc (HGUE). They developed an innovative technology that is in the forefront of a new Flexible Solar Power Industry. This innovative and much more profitable Quantom Dot technology is replacing the silicon wafer-based solar cell industry. Solterra has extraordinary potential given the product addresses medical industry needs as well and is not limited to just the solar arena. The Quantum Dots they manufacture can be used  for research in the biological, electroluminescent, solid state and Semiconductor Quantum Dot (SQD) fields.. Solterra’s new ”’proprietary”’ Quantum Dot (QD) technology is more economical, more energy efficient and stable, has a broader spectral performance and ”’Solterra reduced the cost of Q.D. production by more than 90%”’  This significant cost reduction of the high quality Tetrapods developed by Dr. Wong at Rice University is their foundation. The beauty of this is the application of the Quantum Dot to produce the flexible solar sheet is by a modified ink jet printer!  The Quantum Dot flexible solar sheets are the next generation of low cost efficient power and the beginning of the Flexible Solar Power Industry.  Billions will be allocated and made during the transition from oil to alternative energy sources and Solterra will be one of the significant contributors. In light of the recent political changes SOLAR has become the main stream choice since the Nuclear path has been set back with the loss of funding for Yucca Mountain as a depository for waste fuel.

Significant 2009 PRESS RELEASES:

Saudi Arabia just completed DUE DILIGENCE on HGUE for one of several mega SOLAR project contracts using their Quantum Dot technology.    http://twitthis.com/rwvtzy

 

 2 companies for 1 investment!

That’s right, buy HGUE now and any time up until the filings and get a percentage of Solterra, the second company FREE! This is based on “It is anticipated that upon the closing of this private financing Hague will retain a substantial equity interest in Solterra.” Kind of like AT&T spinning off LUCENT, only in a mini form. That should translate as a minimum into for every two shares of HGUE you’ll get one FREE of Solterra. That’s pretty much what the press release is saying when you read in between the lines. Either way it’s a good risk to rewards ratio that you have to at least consider as an investor. At .10 cents it’s pretty much a no brainer that a little money goes a long way to securing a potentially very nice return!  PRESS RELEASE  http://twitthis.com/5j63dw

It was also very good news to learn the Quantum Dots will be the first positive cash flow generator for the company in the very near future and addition testing showed the generation of 20 percent more electricity than conventional crystalline products
