Role of company/organisation

We are able to deliver high performance Heliox Solar Micro Inverters to install at the roof of the buildings.

Opportunities for collaboration

We need to cooperate with installers for installing the PV panels at the roof, and companies able to deliver the monitoring software to monitor the performance of the PV solar system over the years.

The buildings are located in the built environment of the City of Eindhoven. The buldings are what they are. They were never optimized to install conventional PV solar systems at the rooftop. Due to different partial shading over the day, from the building itself and it enviroment, convential PV systems will not perform optimally. Installing Heliox Micro Inverters will overcome this problem and will maximally harvest the available solar energy under such non ideal conditions. Compared to conventional systems 10-30% more energy is expected to be gained with this solution, which makes it exceptionally valuable for application in the built environment.

Type of ideaproduct
Category of ideatechnical; financial
Enabling conditions- Use the maximum available rooftop area of the building to install PV to generate the maximum electrical power for the building as possible. - Cooperate with experienced installers of PV solar installations. - Cooperate with monitoring software companies for measuring and testing the performance of the system. - Integrate it with other systems in the building.

Stage of development

Proven innovation: it has been used in practice on a small scale.

Substantiation stage of development

At the moment independent institutes as ECN and TNO are testing the system in real weather conditions at the High Tech Campus in Eindhoven.

Provability contribution to sustainability

Proven contribution to sustainability; this has been shown in practice.

Step in the right direction

Harvest the energy from the sun and become less dependent on fossile fuels.

Flexible idea

The Heliox Micro Inverter maximizes the solar energy available per PV-panel. The system is expandable per PV-solar panel. So it is very modular. It is also very reliable because the system will not go down if one Heliox Micro Inverter is failing to work. In a conventional system because there is one inverter, ther is a single point of failure.

Good investment

At the moment installing conventional solar PV systems is already a good investment.
