Energy Innovator Awards 2019

8 Corporate Vision - Energy Innovator Awards 2019 , Sep19410 Believing that the focus should be on solarising existing building materials instead of developing entirely new ones, the simplicity, elegance and beauty of the design are what have truly made Solarmass’ product stand out from the competition in the solar roofing sector. With more than fifty installations of their product currently operating around the world, the firm have established themselves in a market-leading position by having the most compatible, economical, and reliable rooftop solar solution that can be integrated. The Ergosun Integrated Solar Roof Tile is pretty much exactly what is says it is; a solarised concrete roof tile used by everyday roofers. However, it also utilises standard electrical connections, and leverages the economies of scale that come from using widely available materials and trades. Constantly developing and absorbing feedback from every level of the value chain, Solarmass are committed to making the product even easier to use for homeowners and building owners. As well as being aesthetically pleasing, each tile can generate up to 15 watts and outperform conventional solar panels in low light conditions. With a matte finish, the tiles reflect less light and allow more light to e converted into power when compared to traditional solar panels. For maximum efficiency, a bypass diode in every tile prevents one diminished output from impacting all the others on the same roof. Rigorously tested in a myriad of harsh weather conditions, the tiles are also warrantied to provide 80% of peak power even after twenty-five years of use. Connected to the grid or a storage system the same as traditional solar panels, Solarmass’ Ergosun products are eligible for the same tax rebates and savings. Saving the planet and money, without compromising on the aesthetic of the house? It is a phenomenal product. Solarmass’ philosophy is that they want for every homeowner to be proud of the Ergosun products that go on their roof. For clients, that development of pride comes from the firm working with them to deliver clear understanding of what the product is and how it functions. Open and honest discussions fuel the enthusiasm, and collaboration alongside builders and distributors ensure that homeowners get the right-sized system, with the right layout and design, so they can proudly tell neighbours they live in an Ergosun home. As environmental awareness increases around the globe andmore governments commit to introducing renewable energy infrastructure, innovating within this industry is a sure sign of future success. Solarmass Energy Group is doing just that, having developed the world’s only practical solution for integrated rooftop solar power. We shine a spotlight on the firm’s success, after their win in Corporate Vision’s Energy Innovator Awards. For many homeowners, one of the big disadvantages to using solar power is the aesthetic. They’re not exactly the most elegant looking device, and unfortunately, that can dissuade people from getting into renewable energy. However, Solarmass have developed the Ergosun Integrated Solar Roof Tile, a solarised concrete roof tile that is installed by everyday roofers. Without compromising on the beauty of a home, every family can get involved in making the most of the sun’s power. Across the photovoltaics sector in the last twelve months, there has been a sharp increase in the micro-utilisation of renewable energy products, like the Ergosun Integrated Solar Roof Tile. People are looking to be more independent from their reliance on local utilities as rising rates are driving homeowners to seek more sustainable solutions. Increasing environmental awareness and “green” construction processes are also leading to a huge growth across the energy sector. Most Pioneering Solar Tile Manufacturer 2019:
