PHOTOVOLTAIC TECHNOLOGY, AS IT SHOULD BE

Simple like a normal home appliance:
the world’s first all-in-one solar system


Wouldn’t it be wonderful if each of us could produce all the clean energy we need right in our backyards? And wouldn’t it be a cherry on the top if the same photovoltaic system could simply be plug-&-play like any other normal home appliance?
We have stopped asking such questions. Instead, we have answered them – with Smartflower, the world’s first all-in-one solar system.

Extraordinary construction: power for an entire household


Thanks to its extraordinary construction and the perfectly synchronised components, the system delivers, on an average, approx. 4,000 kWh per year, thus fulfilling the complete average electricity requirement of a household*.

A real turning point: achieves a degree of self-utilisation of around 60%


Smartflower represents changing times. The size of the system alone is no longer the measure of all things. What counts is a fairly constant production rate during the course of the day, in order to enable a more effective use of the produced energy.
Smartflower achieves a degree of self-utilisation of around 60% – a significant improvement over a comparable rooftop unit, which averages just around 30%. Now that is what we call smart!

Awake when you are. Energy from the first to the last rays of the sun

A SYSTEM THAT FITS YOUR NEEDS

As the sun rises in the morning, smartflower unfolds itself completely automatically. It directs its solar modular fan (with a surface area of 18 m2) towards the sun and begins producing electricity for you – for your hot shower, your fresh coffee, the breakfast radio. Thanks to dual-axle sun tracking, the fan moves reliably along with the sun throughout the day.
The result: in comparison with the static rooftop system, the unit starts earlier in order to produce the exact amount of electricity you need. It consistently maintains the electricity supply and even uses the energy from the last sun rays efficiently enough to cover your early evening electricity requirements. Only then, does it close up to its secure position, which is also completely automatic.

SMARTFLOWER FOLLOWS THE SUN

SMARTFLOWER COMPARED WITH A STATIC ROOFTOP SYSTEM *

smartflower has a considerably longer peak phase and produces energy even in the fringe hours of the day, which a rooftop system cannot achieve because of its static alignment to the sun. These produce maximum electricity when you are not at home – valuable energy which is lost.

* Basis of calculation: a typical July day in Madrid

Up to 40% more output, thanks to the innovative smart features

Efficiency gain by personal consumption 183%
For rooftop systems, static alignment to the sun, heat build-up and decontamination lead to a lower output than the one stated as theoretically possible at the location. Furthermore, the system does not constantly produce electricity throughout the day, for example in the afternoon when it is not required. This leads to the distinctly lower degree of self-utilization of a rooftop system and/or to the stated efficiency gain of smartflower.

Plug & Play – and that is a promise!

Smartflower functions autonomously and automatically

Clean energy for your everyday life

1 HOUR of smartflower

= 1x make the tastiest lasagne in the world
= 15 hours of your favourite movies, TV series or news
= 101 complete smartphone charges
= 182 hours of relaxing and reading in LED lighting

1 DAY of smartflower

= 3 air conditioning units – for 1 sunny day and pleasant temperatures in the entire house
= 6x drying laundry – if the clothes line is already completely full
= 6x bake the crispiest bread
= 7x hot showers – with continuous flow water heater
= 17 wash loads of laundry
= 50 cups of tea – for waking up or relaxing
= 100 kilometres of clean driving enjoyment in your electric car

1 YEAR of smartflower

= ca. 4.000 kWh – and thus the average complete annual consumption of a central European household.

smartflower produces – depending on the region – between 3,400 and 6,200 kWh.
Numerical examples are based on approximate consumption values of the listed electrical appliances. Computational basis: in the middle of the year, twelve hours between sunrise and sunset/day.
