Periodic Reporting for period 1 - SOLIS (An innovative Solar Lighting System to replace artificial lighting in all types of indoor spaces with free and healthy sunlight.)
Reporting period: 2016-06-01 to 2016-09-30
The objective of the SOLIS project is to finalise the engineering and optimisation of all system components, to set-up and operate the industrialised assembly line, to undertake an in-field demonstration of the SOLIS device validating its effectiveness and economic benefits, and to disseminate the project results.
Compared to the most direct completion, SOLIS doubles the sunlight harvested from the outside of the building (on rooftops or southern walls), minimising the indoor expensive and unhealthy artificial light use. The provides tangible economic benefits to the buildings managers, while significantly improving the well-being and performances of the buildings' occupants. These advantages make SOLIS poised to serve as the first and ultimate choice for a wide range of facilities, starting with schools, hospitals, office blocks, warehouses and malls.
