Emirates Insolaire, Dubai Investments’ joint venture with SwissINSO Holding Inc., which offers the world’s-first KromatixTM coloured solar panels technology, generated a lot of enquiries for building integrated photovoltaic modules from consultants, architects, entrepreneurs and photovoltaic manufacturers at the exhibition, held between June 20 and 22, 2018 at Munich, Germany.

Reinforcing the surging demand for Building-Integrated Photovoltaics [BIPV] across the globe, the KromatixTM technology is now established worldwide as reference for beauty, high efficiency and durability for BIPV.

“Each photovoltaic module of Emirates Insolaire is capable of generating 170 to 190 watts per square meter for roof or 110 to 150 watts per square meter for facades. The company has already completed projects in Switzerland, Brazil, Denmark, Sweden, Austria & Germany and is completing the first five projects in the UAE.”
