B · Warm water storage tank
C · Thermal energy (e.g. boiler, heating, warm water)
D · Electrical energy (e.g. electrical appliances or batteries)

Our patented soblue solution is based on an extremely efficient concept that captures heat without using any harmful additives or resources. Glass, concrete and water are the main building blocks of the soblue system. The entire surface of photovoltaic panels is cooled, guaranteeing a higher energy yield than conventional PV panels. What’s more, the heat captured with this concept can be used as warm water for building services or a source of process heat in industry.

What makes us different?

Benefits of a soblue PVT
