Make the sun warm your nights.
We at Solartes are developing transparent plastics which capture and store the sun energy during the day and release the stored energy as heat during the night. Like a combined solar panel, batterie and radiator, but all-in-one in the form of a transparent plastic.
Integrated into the building skin, the Solartes plastic aims to reduce the need for heating during night-time and helps regulating the indoor climate utilizing solar energy.
Currently, we are in the process of technology validation and product development.

The idea for Solartes plastics was born in Kasper Moth-Poulsen’s research group at Chalmers University of Technology. To transfer our scientific research into a company we were greatly supported by the innovation environment of Chalmers, namely the Chalmers Innovation Office and Chalmers Ventures.
