Forget everything you thought you knew about photovoltaics. Heliatek, a German start-up is revolutionizing the sector and opening it up to everyone because these new type of photovoltaic panels can be placed anywhere, more exactly stick to all kinds of materials: metal, concrete, membrane, glass, bitumen and other supports. A technological initiative spotted by the NGO Energy Observer Solutions.
And if the bus stops,schools, buildings could produce ? Imagine that all surfaces exposed to can generate electricity. This is the dream realized by with its panels , flexible and self-adhesive, which can be placed anywhere and take solar energy production to a new dimension. The German start-up has developed flexible, self-adhesive fully organic solar panels that can be installed absolutely anywhere, even in places where usual photovoltaic solutions cannot.
This urgent energy transition
Thetoday only represent 2% of global electricity production, while always reject more than , accelerating the . Scientists set 2030 . Heliatek contributes to a sustainable by inventing the future of .
Towards zero energy buildings and a carbon neutral economy
Conventional solar panels weigh up to 25 kilos and generate enormous amounts of, which limits the number of structures and buildings that can accommodate them. Heliatek’s solution does not exceed a few grams and allows to produce up to 85 per square meter of surface. Its principle: nano-molecules of deposited on a film , capable of transforming in electricity. Panels that require little maintenance, are weather resistant and are easy to install. The installation possibilities are limitless. in the sun (bus shelters, , buildings, vehicles, clothing, etc.) could become a source of energy.
