Emirates Insolaire's coloured solar panels

Emirates Insolaire showcases coloured solar panels in Doha

DUBAI, February 23, 2015

Emirates Insolaire, a pioneer in the development and application of new solar technologies and a subsidiary of Dubai Investments (DI), is showcasing its coloured solar panel featuring Kromatix technology at the ongoing Façade Design and Engineering Summit in Doha, Qatar.

The firm is unravelling ways to adapt its coloured and sustainable solar panels, its breakthrough photovoltaic (PV) modules as well as solar thermal collectors to enhance the design appeal and aesthetics of building façades in the region, said a statement.

Emirates Insolaire solar panels, coming in virtually any colour, have revolutionised the industry, as they can be easily integrated in natural colours to any façade and roof and thus offer cost-effective and sustainable customisation, it said.

The company has already produced and installed its first façades in Europe, while it continues to receive enquiries from the UAE, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Egypt, Bahrain, Lebanon, as well as from Europe, Asia, the US, and Brazil.

Rafic Hanbali, managing partner of Emirates Insolaire, said: “There is a latent demand for Emirates Insolaire’s revolutionary, coloured solar panels across the globe.

“Our breakthrough glass is optimised for photovoltaic modules as well as solar thermal collectors and we see a massive growth potential in the Gulf region. We expect sales in excess of 50,000 sq m for coloured solar panels and photovoltaic models during 2015 alone.”

“The solar PV industry is booming, with the end-market demand hitting rapid growth levels almost every quarter – so we are quite bullish.,” said Hanbali.

“Our participation in the summit is part of our strategy to reinforce our breakthrough technology to potential partners from across the region and beyond. The scale of construction under way in Qatar itself is phenomenal and offers unmatched growth opportunity,” he added.

The Emirates Insolaire solar glass panels, manufactured with Kromatix technology, are being developed in close collaboration with the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology (EPFL – Ecole Polytechnique Federale de Lausanne), said the statement.

Optimised for photovoltaic modules – which use cells to convert solar radiation into electricity – and solar thermal collectors, the glass provides a architecturally aesthetic appearance to solar panels, preserving more than 90 per cent of the original efficiency, it added. - TradeArabia News Service
