Solivus’s partner Heliatek, a global leader in green and clean solar technology for buildings has just announced that its organic solar film series manufacturing facility has started its first integrated runs this week. Heliatek’s vision is to ensure that by 2030 that they will enable every building to be 100% energy neutral and smart with access to an independent supply of green electricity. They are now bringing that vision to reality with the roll-to-roll vacuum production of organic solar films on a mass-scale, with rolls that are 1.3m wide and 2.6km long.
Solivus® has filed patents for designs using this innovative, solar fabric from Heliatek through working with Red Dot award-winning engineers, Cambridge Design Partnership. The result – a game-changing solar OPV fabric which is the next generation of sustainable products. It is clean as it uses no rare materials, requires minimal heat to manufacture, is fully recyclable and easily disposed of at end-of-life.
Jo Parker-Swift, CEO and Founder of Solivus said, "We are excited that Heliatek has made this significant announcement relating to the mass-scale production of solar organic films. This means that we can provide the latest technology in solar films to our clients and mass production allows us to reach more customers who want a clean, sustainable energy source for their businesses and homes."
Solivus wants to make the world a better place. We are passionate about making a difference to the environment by creating truly sustainable, clean energy products for a fast, evolving market. Our innovative, ultra-lightweight fabric has been designed for the residential and commercial sectors, but we don’t want to stop there, we have aspirations to make it available to many.
Our goal is to be pivotal in reducing reliance on non-renewable energy sources and make cost-efficient energy generation and storage through the transition to more energy efficient vehicles powered with renewable energy and trading excess renewable energy to others to create a cleaner environment for everyone.
