Together with our partner RheinEnergie, we have presented the prototypes of our solar roof tile (photovoltaic + solar thermal energy) and our patented downpipe with a complete roof system at the SHK fair in Essen.
Together with our partner RheinEnergie, we have presented the prototypes of our solar roof tile and have introduced the roof concept with a patented downpipe at the Dach + Holz International fair in Cologne. Particularly interesting were the numerous discussions with roofers and potential production partners for our roof system. We are impressed with the great interest and very positive feedback on our products.
From 06th February until 08th February 2018 we have presented the concept study for a sustainable solution for energy generation on roofs of existing buildings in the form of a solar roof tile in conjunction with a complete roof system together with our partner RheinEnergie at the E-world energy & water trade fair in Essen.
At the trade fair, the prototypes of the solar roof tile were presented to the public for the first time:
The NRW Minister for Economic Affairs, Innovation, Digitalization and Energy, Prof. Dr. med. Andreas Pinkwart, and the NRW Minister of the Environment, Agriculture, Nature and Consumer Protection, Mrs. Christina Schulze Föcking, showed great interest in our product:
The close contact with RheinEnergie since 2015 culminates in an extensive partnership with the conclusion of a cooperation and technology purchase agreement for our innovation, the solar roof tile with roof system. With this agreement RheinEnergie secures the patent rights of our innovation and at the same time invests very extensively in our further development of these technologies up to series production. The next milestone in the cooperation is to build and operate a model roof by the middle of the year. In addition, it is intended to set up a joint venture company for the production and sale of the solar roof tiles and accessories in the future.
We are delighted that RheinEnergie sees the great potential of our innovation and the considerable advantages over conventional solutions and would like to launch this forward-looking product together with us.
The first prototypes of our solar roof tile are finished. They were manufactured by Continental on behalf of RheinEnergie and will soon be presented to the public for the first time.
The patented "snap-in system" convinces with its simple and quick handling, enables a completely safe laying by the roofer and saves installation costs.
