Renkube is bringing to the market an innovative light-harvesting glass that gathers more sunlight and redirects it to the solar cells, thereby increasing the energy yield of the solar panel by 20%. We have applied our expertise in machine learning algorithms to design a glass that can capture more sunlight purely by the nature of its geometric design without any chemical coating or electro-mechanical components. Though this technology is not a retrofit to the existing solar panels, it can work with any underlying solar cell technologies like mono, perc, perovskite etc
Like how a sunflower tracks the sun, Renkube’s glass can track the sun motion-free, hence the name Motion Free Optical Tracking (MFOT) technology. Another novelty of our glass design is that it is a universal one that works from Singapore to London and across all seasons to give a 20% energy yield increase. Renkube’s solar panel doesn’t entail any special maintenance other than regular cleaning of the panels
Renkube Panels Vs Traditional Panels
Existing fixed-tilt traditional solar panels generate peak power only at noon. For example, at 9 am, your solar panel could be generating only 50% power. Thus, the bell curve graph below shows that panels are not operating at their maximum potential for the whole day. And Renkube panel improves the over energy generation throughout the day without overshooting the peak rating of the panel.
Renkube solar panels owing to their unique design and layout, are a ubiquitous choice for Agri PV. Now, Solar can be an added source of income for farmers - they can continue to cultivate 100% of the land as before and lease it to solar developers. This project is to be validated with a pilot at Telangana Agriculture University, where we will grow and measure groundnut yield underneath Renkube solar panels.
Low-Cost Green Hydrogen Energy Generation
Worldwide efforts are underway to slash the cost of producing green hydrogen energy by 80% to $1/Kg within the next decade, and with our efficient solar panel, we are accelerating this transition.
