Heliatek Signs Strategic Partnership with Looop for Japan
Heliatek has signed a strategic partnership agreement with Looop In. to market and install the innovative solar films in Japan. Both companies have already tested the solar films in several pilot projects, including a comparison test site on the campus of the Ritsumeikan University in 2020. Heliatek and Looop are convinced that the innovative solar films are perfectly suited to unlock a large potential of unused surfaces for solar power generation in Japan's metropolises.

Pilot Project for Innovative PV Solutions From Heliatek
Avoiding CO2 emissions wherever possible - GREEN also pursues this goal for managed portfolio properties of GARBE. The system can extend the lifespan and utilisation cycles of the properties and enhance the attractiveness of the locations long-term. Moreover, it can help avoid demolition, which is a waste of energy. If the installation of a conventional roof-mounted photovoltaic system is not possible on roofs due to insufficient static or structural stability, older buildings may be retrofitted in the future by mounting organic photovoltaic films laterally on their façades.
