Do you want to buy roof tiles again soon??
Do you know what roof tiles have to do with solar energy? Are you still looking for the Missing Link? We already have the answer you need, especially if you are going to buy roof tiles soon and want to act in a sustainable and environmentally friendly way. The secret word is glass brick. That’s right, it’s about innovative glass roof tiles that are used to generate electricity from the sun.
It is interesting to know that the energy that the earth receives from the sun for about an hour would in principle be sufficient for the entire energy requirement of all people within one year. The technology of solar cells was invented in 1939 and used in space travel in 1950.
Sophisticated construction with glass bricks
So, you are probably wondering why not all buildings are simply equipped with solar and photovoltaic systems and why are you simply not using solar energy for all sorts of things? The answer is very simple. So far, solar technology has been too expensive and, for this reason, not really economical to use. However, it has not been the case for some time and between 2010 and 2015, for example, the price of solar energy fell by 50%. According to the IEA (International Energy Agency), solar energy will be the largest source of our electricity needs by 2050.
Clean air through renewable energies
The Swedish company SolTech Energy noticed this early enough and developed an incomparable power system made of glass bricks. This smart innovation is suitable for every type of building – residential buildings, hotels, farms, high-rise buildings, hospitals, schools and many others. Instead of concrete or conventional ceramic tiles, high-quality, robust glass is used here, which lets in as much daylight as possible. In this case, the solar cells are located under the bricks and are thus very well protected from the environmental conditions. They convert solar energy directly into electricity and heating energy. In the first case the device is called SolTech Power and in the second SolTech Sigma. At SolTech Power, an inverter is used that converts the electricity produced into usable electricity. SolTech Sigma is a water-based solution that uses pipes and ducts to transfer the heat from the roof into the heating system.
Easy and quick to lay
As you can probably see for yourself, this is a sustainable, environmentally friendly and inexpensive innovation that you should definitely consider the next time you want to buy new roof tiles. Do not find?
