The start-up

Smartroof develops, produces and installs solar roof tiles that have integrated photovoltaic elements and are able to be used for renovation and construction projects.

The need

While a great deal of people are interested in solar energy, many are not keen on the aesthetics of standard solar panels. Smartroof Suntiles offer an alternative.

The solution

Smartroof Suntiles are completely integrated into the roof, making the photovoltaic elements look attractive and natural. They can be combined with several types of ‘classic’ tiles (Neopan/Renopan, ceramic). Integrated cooling channels result in an important increase in efficiency and lifespan.

The value proposition

  • BIPV with internal cooling solution and heat recuperation.
  • Cost-effective: financial return in 10 years.
  • Easy to install and repair, no special chassis is needed.
  • High efficiency: 125 Wp/m²; full energy coverage is possible.
