Heliatek: truly green and organic solar films

Climate change is happening right now with proven negative impact on our environment, economies and societies. The key to slow down the global warming process is the significant reduction of greenhouse gases at all stages of industrial processes. Therefore, a massive turnaround of energy production towards low carbon technologies is essential. Heliatek (Dresden, Germany) brings an innovative organic solar film solution (HeliaSol) as a powerful means for the decarbonisation of the energy sector. HeliaSol is an ultra-thin, lightweight, flexible all-in-one solution that can add value to virtually any building surface — from glass, metal and concrete to polymer membranes — turning it into clean electricity generators, no matter if they are flat, curved or even semi-permanent.
