Naked Energy Limited
Naked Energy is a British engineering, design and innovation business redefining solar with Virtu.
Virtu solar redefined
Virtu combines the best of solar thermal and photovoltaic to provide heat and power from minimal space
Energy is more than electricity. Half of all energy is used for heating (and cooling). The untapped global potential for renewable thermal energy is huge (US$270bn annual spend on heating and cooling just in the United States). Naked Energy set out to create the world’s most efficient solar thermal collector, but didn’t stop there. Virtu is not only an exceptional solar thermal collector it also incorporates the very best photovoltaic cells to generate both heat and power from the same roof space. Combining materials and installation costs means that the savings from the heat and power generated payback the initial expenditure more quickly and go on to produce returns that are significantly higher than separate thermal and PV systems. Virtu’s energy density is such that it can produce the same outputs from 40% less area and offset more CO2. Early adopters with the most to gain from decarbonising the production of both heat and power for their buildings include organisations in construction, real estate, hospitality and the food and beverage industries.
