Konarka Nominated for 2003 World Tech Awards

London, England & San Francisco, California - June 26, 2003 [SolarAccess.com] The World Technology Network (WTN) announced this week that Konarka Technologies, Inc., has been selected as a nominee for this year's World Technology Awards in the category of Energy.

The award will be presented in association with NASDAQ, Accenture, TIME magazine, Dupont Textiles and Interiors, Technology Review magazine, Science magazine and Genencor International. Konarka's technology converts sunlight as well as indoor, artificial light into direct current electrical power. The company uses unique, proprietary low-temperature production methods to put the photovoltaic cells onto flexible, lightweight plastics.

"The World Technology Awards program was created to recognize truly extraordinary innovation on a global scale, the sort of work that could be described as creating our collective future and changing our world. Konarka's contribution in the field of Energy has been outstanding, and the nomination is just an acknowledgement of that fact," said James P.

"Now that Konarka has won several prestigious awards, we are delighted to receive this nomination from some of the most prominent thought leaders in the field of Energy as a validation of our technology," said Dr. Bill Beckenbaugh, president and CEO, Konarka Technologies, Inc.

Nominees for the 2003 World Technology Awards were identified based on an intensive, global process in which current WTN members (primarily winners and finalists of previous Awards cycles) made their nominations based on who they think are most innovative and impactful, within their particular field.
