Our daily objectives are to meet the challenges of façade aesthetics and energy production, as well as to meet the highest requirements for architects, building owners and solar panel manufacturers. Thanks to this commitment from the first days, we are proud to announce 4 good news.
WINNER OF 2018 PRIX SUD (START-UP DURABLE)
After winning the Zürich insurance climate prize in the construction and housing category in 2016 and the international PV-Magazine innovation prize in 2017, Solaxess was selected last August as a finalist for the SUD Sustainable Start-up prize, initiated by the newspaper “Le Temps” and supported by Romande Energie. Following the votes of readers and internet users, as well as votes of jury experts, Solaxess wins this first 2018 edition!
AN ALMOST INVISIBLE SOLAR PHOTOVOLTAIC FAÇADE
A small PPE located in the north of the commune of Boudry (NE), requested a local façade specialist for the realization of a part of facade in photovoltaic panels. The objective was to completely blend in a few dozen m2 of panels (to power the heat pump and the common premises) with the rest of the plastered façade. Thanks to our white film integrated during the PV-panels manufacturing, the colour of the whole building is completely uniform and has been working to satisfaction for several months.
SOLAXESS AND 2020 HORIZON
Solaxess is part of a consortium that has set up a project in response to the European Horizon 2020 programme. This "BE-Smart" project aims to develop efficient, reliable and inexpensive technical solutions in order to facilitate the installation of integrated photovoltaic facades during the renovation or construction of new buildings.
LARGE QUANTITY PRODUCTION AND NEW COLOURS
After 2 years of collaboration with two major industrial groups in Europe, Solaxess is now able to offer 3 different colours allowing a perfect integration of a PV panel in the façade: white, light grey and beige, the latter being perfectly adapted to the renovation of existing buildings. Other basic colours are already in development, and any RAL or NCS colours are of course possible, on request, for sufficient quantities.
