VolThera Plug & Play, energy efficient and comfortable living
We talk a lot about climate change and how to create a sustainable society. Many solutions are offered, creating the risk that we might not be able to see the wood for the trees. That is why AliusEnergy chooses smart solutions, making both electricity and heat generation sustainable by using VolThera, a panel on the roof thanks to which both electricity and heat are generated. Behind it is found the latest technology that connects to an inverter for electricity generation and a heat pump for heat generation. With VolThera we achieve maximum efficiency from the sun: per panel 265 kwh/year of electricity and 1,028 kwh/year of heat. That’s up to an amazing five times the energy output compared to PV, with heat generation in the night and on cloudy days, in every season. For a typical one-family house, VolThera provides an annual energy saving of 73%.
Climapac presents ClimaSolar
Climapac is an exclusive distributor of DualSun hybrid PVT solar panels. They are fully integrated into the unique ClimaSolar concept. ClimaSolar promotes an energy-neutral heating installation. The PVT solar panels supply heat and electricity to the heat pump. The heat pump increases the heat to a higher temperature that is suitable for domestic hot water and underfloor heating. Thanks to the cooling of the PV side, the electrical yield is up to 30% more on hot summer days. ClimaSolar is used for both residential and large projects such as hotels and apartment buildings.
ECOTRONIC | PergoSlate: a terrace covering with solar modules? Yes, it is possible!

Available in two versions glass/glass and two versions glass/Blacksheet. The construction is supplied in one package with standard dimensions. Upon request, Ecotronic can also supply sliding walls with glass and sun protection.
SunMan eArche panels better suited for large roofs
About 50% of the roofs of industrial, commercial and agricultural buildings, flat or slightly inclined, cannot support conventional photovoltaic installations because of their excessive weight. SunMan Energy's eArche panels, ultra-light and flexible, provide a solution to this problem, opening important new opportunities to EPCs. Their mono- and polycrystalline cells offer greater efficiency because SunMan panels heat less than glass panels. Composed of fiberglass composites, SunMan panels are less than 3 mm thick. Their weight is ideal, about 3 kg/m2, thus allowing for different installation methods without ballast. SunMan eArche panels have the same service life as glass panels because they are protected by an ETFE film which is highly resistant to the weather and to corrosive products (i.e. salt, fertilisers, ammonia). Discover this innovation at InterSolution.
Custom storage solutions
For installation operators, it is important to consume self-generated power optimally. To this end, they must be able to store solar energy efficiently and use it flexibly. The portfolio of Fronius includes customised storage solutions for a range of applications: from hot water storage with the Fronius Ohmpilot, through compatible storage products from leading manufacturers such as LG and BYD, to the fully integrated all-in-one Frontex Energy Package. Unlike most providers, Fronius does not offer a single one-size-fits-all solution for everything. Instead, they offer a wide range of options so that the installer can choose exactly the right solution based on the individual situation of the customer and his or her preferences. The extensive world of Fronius storage solutions will be presented at InterSolution.

KRANNICH SOLAR | New Axitec module with shingle technology
With AXIblackperfect, AXITEC presents a new cell technology in so-called shingle technology. In this new module technology, the cells are cut into equal parts, superimposed and connected. The term “shingle technology” comes from the superposition of the cell parts, which looks like a shingle roof. This technology increases the active surface of the module and reduces electrical losses. The technical properties with an efficiency of 18.4 to 19.6% and a power of 320-340Wp are excellent for a completely black module. Because there are no conductive tracks on the front of the module, a homogeneous black module surface is created, allowing for a new aesthetic module design. The result is a colour-uniform roof surface.
