Technology

Combination of the proven

The Hero modules combine tried and tested technologies. Energy is generated around the clock from the unique combination of solar thermal, photovoltaic, wind energy and thermal in one module.
Sun – Electrical Energy:

Sun rays are converted into electrical energy by light cells. The latest generation of these light cells ensures very high performance.

Sun – Heat Energy:

Sun rays heat the specially developed integrated unit composite system. Both the radiation and the direct radiation heat the liquid contained therein. This heats the hot water system.

Wind – Electrical Energy:
Wind drives the propellers installed in the modules. The rotation generates energy. The patented design generates energy even at low wind speeds.
Thermic – Electrical Energy:
Thanks to the special design, thermals are directed into the modules and thus drives the built-in propellers. This ensures day and season-optimized energy generation.

Hero modules can be used for every private and commercial building: 

Commercial

  • Office and administration building

  • Shopping centers, supermarkets, outlets

  • Hotels, restaurants

  • Gas stations, rest areas

  • Tennis halls, gyms

  • Commercial, technology parks

Residential

  • Family houses

  • Apartment buildings

  • Residential buildings

Installation of Hero Modules

Depending on the variant, the Hero modules can be installed on a gable or flat roof as well as on the outer facade and produce clean energy for decades. Standard components make the Hero modules robust, long-lasting and stable.
New Roofs:

In a new building, the Hero modules replace conventional roof tiles. The Hero modules are ready-to-use roof tiles with additional energy functions. The insulation is also already integrated and does not have to be installed separately or additionally.

Existing roofs:

Hero modules can also be mounted on existing roofs. If Hero modules are retrofitted, they are attached to the existing roof tiles, secured and connected to the existing power and heating system.

Four times energy production

A four-person household requires an average of approximately 35,000 kWh of energy per year.
A building with a roof area of ​​160m² can cover the energy requirements many times over by using the Hero modules:

SUN

approx. 190 kWh
per m² / year
(Ø solar radiation)

HEAT

approx. 270 – 360 kWh
per m² / year
(Ø solar radiation)

WIND

approx. 30 – 200 kWh
per m² / year
(Ø wind speed 2.4 m/s)

THERMAL

approx. XX – XX kWh
per m² / year
(Ø wind speed 2.4 m/s)​​

minimum Ø 78.400 kWh

per year and building with 160 m2 roof area

That corresponds to minimum Ø 490 kWh per year and m2.
