SolarGaps - Energy generating solar smart window blinds

Project description

Produce green energy with smart solar blinds

Buildings are responsible for more than a third of energy consumption and CO2 emissions. The EU’s Energy Performance of Buildings Directive requires all new buildings to be nearly zero-energy by the end of 2020. To meet this requirement and address the increasing cost of electricity, many households and businesses are looking to invest in private solar photovoltaic electricity and shadowing systems. However, this is not an option without sufficient roof or land area. The EU-funded SolarGaps project has developed the first window blinds that automatically track the sun and generate electricity from its energy. Its priority now is to complete the technological and commercial development of the B2B smart solar blinds system and bring the product to market.
