Today, we’re happy to announce an exciting project that we bring to you together with Natoni powered by ENGIE. Our teams joined forces to develop an innovative solution for the eMobility sector – Solar Carport. Let’s dive straight into the details.
About the Partnership
ENGIE is a global energy and services group with over 20 years of experience in the Polish market. It is committed to successfully address the world’s energy challenges by becoming a leader in the transition to renewable resources.
Natoni specializes in eMobility infrastructure containing EV chargers and Hydrogen stations. It’s focused on the installation and commissioning of electric car charging stations in Central Europe.
Our business collaboration with Natoni resulted in starting a new project called Solar Carport. Our team is in charge of the design, construction, and solar technology (note: Solar Carport is protected internationally by the industrial design rights owned by Saule Technologies). Natoni is the partner responsible for chargers, energy storages, and IoT infrastructure, as well as the product distribution.
Meet Solar Carport
Solar Carport is an autonomous charging station which requires no external power supply. It includes an integrated photovoltaic installation containing 12 solar modules with a 3.36 kW total nominal power. Just easily plug your vehicle into the port as needed and enjoy the benefits of a sustainable, efficient power source.
The first product presentation took place at the New Mobility Congress in Lublin (September 9-10). At the event, ENGIE showcased the basic version pictured above. While high usability is the primary goal, we don’t want to compromise on the aesthetic aspects. Solar Carport features simple and elegant lines, and it can perfectly enhance any modern space.
The upgraded version includes four sidewalls, which can be used as an advertising space. Consider it a new and environment-friendly marketing channel for your brand.
At this point, you might wonder, “Hey, aren’t you a perovskite solar cell company?” Yes, it is the core of our work and development focus. That being said, simultaneously we are working on Solar Carport 2.0.
This upcoming version will get a premium feature – 30 m2 of perovskite solar modules integrated into its four walls. This means roughly 2600 kWh of additional energy produced over a year (at 16% assumed efficiency). Due to our novel production method based on inkjet printing, these walls will still be able to display custom advertisements.
We want Solar Carport to be a universal product, that can be purchased and used by organizations, companies, as well as individual consumers.
The eMobility market develops rapidly, and our technology can contribute to its growth in a meaningful way. Like ENGIE & Natoni, we want to lead the renewable transformation and to change how people think about energy production.
