• Breakthrough in smart energy system

    28 January 2012

    Solarfin is a new, patented smart energy system enabling the buildings’ façade or roof to capture and use energy either from the suns heat or night radiation cooling to control the temperature of a building.

    Solarfin has two moving parts: one to expose or protect the thermal collection and storage media, the other connects this media to the building structure.  Critically buildings remain insulated achieving even internal temperatures. Hot air and water is available as a by-product at 40-80 ‘C.

    Solarfin is a simple cost effective smart energy solution using conventional materials and making our buildings more dynamic and truly energy saving.

    Inventor Steve Bourne, Managing Director, Design Chamber International, stated, “Solarfin allows us to make glass buildings exceeding ever tougher energy regulations, significantly reducing the carbon footprint. Interestingly the façade can be a giant moving bill board, generating income further improving already twice-quicker payback than that of windmills or solar voltaic systems.”
