Lightweight

Due to the unique structure inspired by nature, a weight saving of 50% is achieved. This makes your project feasible and integrally cheaper.

Low carbon footprint

Due to low temperature production and favorable use of materials, the Solarge panels are best in class in sustainability labels such as BREEAM.

Quick to install

Solarge polymer solar panels are available in large sizes and can be installed completely mounting-free. This results in 40% faster installation.

Fully recyclable

Provided with a 10-year product warranty and also fully recyclable at the end of its life.

Vision

Solarge aspires to accelerate the energy transition in Europe, without affecting our living environment or horizon. Dual use of the built environment is crucial for this. Conventional solar solutions can, however, be integrated to a limited extent because buildings are often not designed for this. We develop fully recyclable, lightweight solar products that can be integrated into a home or building with a minimum of effort.

Solarge wants to be the first in Europe with a high volume production facility for integrated solar roofs and facades, upscaling to 150 – 300 MWp per year production capacity in 2021 and continuing to grow. Solarge wants to achieve this through the development of products with unique properties. Conventional solar products are often not feasible due to limited carrying capacity in existing buildings and lead to higher costs. Solarge expects a significant growth based on affordable, fully recyclable lightweight panels for use in utility and industrial buildings. Where weight saving and the use of sustainable materials gain value for the real estate. Responding to the regulations to remove asbestos from shed roofs and the trend towards industrialized building products, Solarge will continue to grow in the agricultural and housing sector. The innovative products are partly established through strong and sustainable relationships with leading solar R&D institutes and companies in Europe. Solarge expects to be able to scale up the use of polymer semi-finished products from 2020 onwards.
