Photovoltaic elements in shade sails, the new future ?
Being innovators on the field of shade and design we can´t wait for the next thing, which are the tensile solar shades. Shades with photovoltaic elements that will give shade and provide ´green´ power.
At this very moment the military is working with the new technique. The technology is photovoltaic (PV) cells embedded in layers of fabric to capture the sun’s rays, store it and generate electricity for multiple applications.
The sun's energy can be harnessed as either light or heat. The process of converting light (photons) to electricity (voltage) is called the photovoltaic (PV) effect.
In 2004 thin film solar was very much a new and embryonic technology. Throughout the period from 2004 to 2011 research and development by solar film manufacturers was conducted at great pace to the point where thin film PV cells now have extended warranted life.
Tensile Solar, weatherproof and structurally reinforced photovoltaic modules that act almost like a fabric that can not only protect, but power for example your car.
Providing an all-round shade solution for our clients these shades will be one of the innovations we are looking forward to.
