Warm and fresh air with solar energy

By 7th November 2017Semi-finalists

Air is one of the most important components of our health, and it has to be of high quality. Since people spend 70% of their time indoors, indoor climate and fresh air inside are one of the main factors of a building. SolNavitas from Estonia has the solution to provide fresh air indoors, using renewable energy.

They have created a smart ventilation system that offers a better interior climate for the house at no additional cost. This is an autonomous supplemental heating and ventilation unit that operates with a solar exterior. It absorbs solar thermal energy through sheet metal and uses sunlight to produce electricity that powers ventilator fans and the remote control. In sunny weather, the panel absorbs the sun’s thermal radiation and starts to supply heated and filtered outdoor air into the building through a built-in 12 V ventilator fan.

“We can make our customers happy, preserve the environment and change the way the society thinks. We are also raising awareness among people about green energy,” says Margus Kullerkup of SolNavitas.

He will represent SolNavitas and Estonia during the semi-finals of Ideas from Europe in Tallinn on November 22. Watch his pitch and those of the other candidates via our live stream.
