PV foil is 'building-integrated': it collects solar energy, and makes the roof waterproof at the same time.
In addition to conventional thermal energy storage, we use a solution that was developed especially for us.
Solar energy does not pollute and won’t run out any time soon. But how best to exploit its power?
