My Story

Dr Hasan Baig co-founded Build Solar in 2017 following his extensive research career in the development of innovative solar technologies. With over 15 years of experience in this area and remarkable entrepreneurial skills, Hasan co-founded Build Solar after an extensive research career in developing innovative solar technologies.


Prior to becoming the Managing Director at Build Solar, Hasan worked as a researcher at the Environmental & Sustainability Institute and Center of Research Excellence in renewable energy. During this time, he played a crucial role in developing the company's flagship product, Solar Squared Technology, from a research idea to commercialization and production. Under his leadership, Build Solar secured funding from Innovate UK and BEIS, enabling the company to grow and expand its operations.


Hasan's eight-year tenure as an active researcher with the University of Exeter was instrumental in shaping a world-class research laboratory, resulting in securing over £4M in research grant funding.
