The next generation of COMPACT SOLAR PRODUCTS for SMART CITIES
Much more than a solar streetlight, the SOLAR HUB is an integrated energy and information system that combines advanced solar photovoltaic technology with lithium-polymer batteries, LED lighting technology, and remote monitoring technology.
The SOLAR HUB is a compact element composed of several technology components. The outer case of the product is a flexible photovoltaic dome which generates energy for the components inside the body, such as electronic controls, the energy accumulator and the lighting LED modules. This new energy-autonomous solar streetlight has significantly lower production costs, high energy efficiency and an overall low environmental impact. with pollutants such as the lead in batteries or mercury in the lamp being replaced by cleaner technologies.
The SOLAR HUB is the result of stylish design and a cutting edge technology and is set to be the start of a new integrated product line for Smart Cities.
