A FUTURE OF ENERGY SELF-SUFFICIENCY
The EU has developed guidelines for nZEB (nearly zero-energy buildings) that oblige all European member states to develop and implement an nZEB policy by 2020. Solar energy is therefore an unavoidable link for the construction and renovation of an energy-neutral building. The current pace and design for BIPV solar installations are insufficient to meet the climate targets.
By using the building envelope to produce energy, we want to contribute to the climate goals set in the Paris agreement.
Together with our local partner networks, our solutions, and our most efficient production methods, we have started realizing new facade solutions that contribute to energy-neutral buildings that can generate more energy than they consume.
Solar panels on sloping roofs are ubiquitous in the street scene. However, the installations are large, striking, and are perceived as an eye-sore object. The aesthetics concern appears to be the most significant barrier to installing solar panels for many.
The use of smart, sustainable energy with an eye for design is imperative. In 2020, it is mandatory for architects and developers to integrate solar panels efficiently and affordably into both the roof and the facade of the building without compromising on architecture and aesthetics.
AEP (Aesthetic Energy Panels) are completely disguised as facade cladding. Rather than compromising on architecture and aesthetics, AEP adds aesthetic values on top of the building, while harvesting solar energy for the coming decades. With custom production, you can let your imagination run wild.
1. Cost & Payback
Contrary to what their look suggests, Aesthetic Energy Panels are inexpensive compared to some marble/ metal facade cladding. The fact it combines the function of solar panel, it will pay itself back within its lifespan.
2. Efficiency & Sustainability
AEP utilizes high-quality, sustainable solar cells with guaranteed power efficiency. The panel has an efficiency range of 90-160 Wp/m² despite the vivid color and patterns on top of the surface.
3. Mounting & Connection
In partnership with a prestigious European facade specialist, AEP offers total solutions for multiple application scenarios, including ventilated facade and balcony railings.
4. Support & Guidance
AEP provides one-step-shop service to project design and technical support. You can count on experts from our team and selected channels in both design and construction phases.
Reveal a new ERA of solar energy
Nowadays, the market for solar panels still mainly focuses on flat and pitched roofs. A large part of the building envelope, in particular, vertical facades and balconies remain unused.
With AEP total solutions, we make sure all the cladding units generate clean energy efficiently and aesthetically. In this way, we contribute globally to a better, cleaner world.
With respect for architecture
AEP (Aesthetic Energy Panel) is ideal for those looking for better measures to seamlessly integrate solar panels into a building project without compromising aesthetics or architectural characteristics.
The AEP product range is extensive. You can choose from various colors or textures such as natural stone, wood, marble, etc. Do you want something unique? Then you have the option of having the panels developed entirely according to your design.
