Solenza announces the development of a new integrated solar energy roof system


Solenza’s process integrates its solar panels directly with the structure’s roof.

New Zealand-based Solenza has recently announced the development of a new solar PV water-heating system that has been designed to do away with costlier traditional bolt solar panels.

Instead of using a standard bolt-on system that most of today's systems use, Solenza's process enables the company to directly integrate the solar PVs to the house's roofing iron, cutting down on costs and payback time, as well as increasing overall efficiency.

The panels will use the gathered solar energy to generate electricity for the home, as well as for heating water. Trials indicate that up to 70% of the received sunlight is converted by Solenza's design into useful energy.

“We’re very excited about the market potential of Solenza’s solar roofing technology. Solar energy is receiving a lot of attention as cost-cutting, self-sufficiency, and environmental concerns are boosting the uptake of alternative energy solutions globally," said WaikatoLink’s Chief Executive Mark Stuart.

"Solenza is a great example of how we can leverage world class research from the university to produce products that meet real market needs."

Solenza, which was set up by WaikatoLink, the commercial arm of the University of Waikato, plans to continue researching improvements for its experimental system.
However, inquiries from the US and India have already been received regarding possible partnerships that will allow the solar system design to be used in these countries.
