A key issue

According to the latest REN21 report «Renewables 2021 Global Status Report», heat accounts for more than 50% of the total globally consumed energy worldwide, a volume much higher than the required 17% of electricity by the entire planet.

It makes sense, therefore, that decarbonisation plans should consider generating more heat than electricity in a sustainable and zero-emissions way.

OUR GOAL
Bring to the market a new hybrid solar collector designed from essential to take care of the planet as well as people. This is SHE.

Hybrid solar panels are the solution

Abora Solar is a company specialised in designing, developing and manufacturing hybrid solar collectors, which simultaneously provide heat and electricity. These panels maximise energy efficiency per unit of floor area.

We have patented a breakthrough innovation that completely changes the structure and manufacturing process of hybrid solar panels, allowing us to simultaneously increase energy efficiency and reduce costs. With SHE collector we can supply 4 times more energy than a photovoltaic panel and extended life cycle.

Our goal for 2025

Reach 50.000 panels which will be fabricated in Europe and sold worldwide in 2025.

The solar thermal market relative to buildings and industries is estimated to be valued in € 195 billion and would have nearly 450 million solar collectors installed by 2025.

Thanks to EIC Accelerator Pilot grant, Abora Solar will finalise the development of our breakthrough solar SHE panel as well as the manufacturing line that will enable its market launch in 2022.

Our innovation

New concept of PVT

We break with the traditional concept in PVT technology of joining PV panels and ST collectors and we create a new hybrid solar collector from scratch under the vision of going to the essential principle of transforming irradiation into heat and electricity.

This process is what gives our technology its name, simply: Solar, Heat & Electricity (SHE).

Disrupting technology

Our new Solar, Heat & Electricity (SHE) technology, disrupts the traditional PVT idea offering the simplest and most profitable hybrid solar collector on the market.

Quantifiable improvement

Improving simultaneously energy efficiency and costs through this disruptive innovation, we have been able to overcome the limitations of products currently available on the market.

We are unique because, in addition to saving 50 % of rooftop space, we generate 4 times more energy than a conventional photovoltaic panel.
