Germany: Sunways Launches Solar Window Blinds in Europe
German solar cell manufacturer
Sunways has recently launched a new building use for solar cells, 'Solar
Blinds' - an innovative example of the application of solar cells.
For the first time ever, Solar
Blinds were installed in the "Solar Center Mecklenburg-Vorpommern" in Wietow,
Germany. They serve as a protection against bad weather, sun and burglary
and, at the same time, produce electricity with their integrated solar
Sunways explains that the
Solar Blinds harmonize well with the overall appearance of the building
and can even be integrated into buildings protected for their historical
significance. They produce electricity both in the opened and closed position.
The Solar Blinds are manufactured
according to the requirements of the building. The architect chooses the
color of the opaque or transparent solar cells used. The latter ones are
integrated in an especially safe glass glass module.
Project partners in the new
solar blinds are Colt International GmbH, as distributors and architect
Astrid Schneider of Berlin. The cells are manufactured by Sunways and the
module manufacturer is Solarnova GmbH, Wedel.
