BUILDING INTEGRATED SOLAR MATERIAL

Currently seeking investment, partnerships, collaborations and licensing opportunities to develop 2nd generation prototypes ready for market

Building Integrated Solar Material

This exciting new technology merges solar energy capture systems with common roofing materials. The technology forms the foundation for one of WaikatoLink's seed companies, Solenza.We are currently developing three separate solar roofing panel designs to carry out the following functions:

  • Solar hot water generation
  • Combined solar hot water and electricity generation

As green energy solutions become more popular, it will be important for solar panels to complement the design of a building. Building-integrated solar panels are designed to join seamlessly with metal roofing, producing an aesthetically-pleasing finish to any roof.

Applications

  • Industrial, commercial or residential solar energy installations

USPs

  • A building-integrated alternative to unsightly 'bolt-on' solar panels
  • Simultaneous electricity and water heating outputs
  • Increased electrical performance due to cooling of PV cells

Commercial Objective

We are currently seeking investment, partnerships, collaborations and licensing opportunities to develop 2nd generation prototypes ready for market.
