HORIZON is a worldwide unparalleled retractable folding solar roof that can be utilized in already commercially exploited spaces such as
parking lots, storage and logistics facilities, as it enables the production of solar power through dual usage. The dual usage of spaces preserves resources and allows for the production of solar power where it is needed most. The folding roof automatically avoids poor weather and retracts itself into a central garage. Due to this protective function the retractable folding solar roof is aesthetic, lightweight and economical. Horizon has been designed with the future in mind as it can be integrated into current and future trends such as IoT, smart mobility and smart grids. Our solution provides a solution to the increasing densification of our living spaces and eases the competition amongst industry, housing, cropland, recreational spaces and energy production. Horizon is a disruptive technology and it has no direct competing solutions which can achieve a similar
dual function in the target markets. The two main applications of the folding solar roof are parking-logistics areas and wastewater treatment plants.
The customers are municipalities, energy providers or land operators. High self-consumption remains at the centre for both segments, as well as
additional benefits such as shade for vehicles, brand image or the compatibility with electro mobility charging stations.
