Bio-inspired, nanotextured, anti-reflection glass for high performance solar panels
01 / INCREASED ENERGY EFFICIENCY
02 / REDUCED MAINTENANCE
03 / RETROFIT EXISTING ASSETS
Tests have shown that Edgehog's Invisible Glass increases a module’s energy output (measured at normal incidence) by an amazing 5% on average!
During off-peak hours when the sun in low in the sky, Edgehog's Invisible Glass can boost energy output by as much as 25% at the beginning and the end of the day!
Invisible Glass is hydrophobic reducing the accumulation of dust and residue thus reducing the need for maintenance
Edgehog's solution largely eliminates the need for expensive and bulky tracking mechanisms.
The productivity of existing solar assets can be greatly improved by retrofitting them with Edgehog's technology.
Unlike other nanotexture glass technologies, Edgehog's Invisible Glass can be scaled up to produce on a global scale.
