In view of the energy crisis and air pollution, the transition to sustainable energy harvesting and storage is one of the critical challenges for our society. Today, approximately 48% of the energy consumption in Europe is used for heating of buildings. Thus, reducing the energy need for heating is crucial for the transition to sustainable energy management.

Solartes addresses this challenge by providing a unique transparent polymer composites, which harvest energy by absorbing UV light during the day, store the solar energy and release it in the form of heat during the night.

Integrated into windows, or in the form of retrofit panels and blinds, the Solartes materials can reduce the nocturnal heat loss through the windows, reducing the need for heating and energy consumption.
