Solar energy has been gaining popularity in recent decades as one of the cleanest sources of energy, inspiring the generation of cutting-edge technology. One of the examples is the call Smartflower, a device that captures energy in an intelligent way looking for the Sun.

The company behind the gadget -which has the same name as its product- emphasizes that its creation is a solution that responds to the needs of the sculptural designas it produces clean and sustainable energy for homes, cars or businesses while being inspired by nature.

But how does it work?

The device is shaped like a flower with a two-axis tracking system at its core. At dawn, Smartflower opens its panels to the optimum angle of 90º with respect to the Sun. and follow the trajectory of the star across the sky.

In addition to following the Sun, it has an open flow that keeps it cool and a system that keeps it clean, as the built-in brushes sweep away any sediment or residue that has accumulated during operation.

“Its aesthetic and award-winning design allows our customers to show their commitment to sustainability and make a striking statement about the need to create a clean energy future,” he explained. Sheen Hui, creative designer of the device.

“We’ve even seen customers display our Smartflower as solar art!”

40%

Smartflowers generate more energy than fixed solar panels.

Advantages of Smartflower over conventional solar panels:

-The dual-axis tracking system causes up to 40% more energy to be produced during more hours of the day.

-The longer production duration allows customers of Smartflowers the possibility of displacing costly peaks in electricity consumption. Fixed solar panels do not have this ability.

-The Smartflower is delivered to the site fully assembled, so its installation “plug and play” can be completed in less than a day.

-Since Smartflower is installed on the ground, customers they don’t have to worry about the design of the rooforientation or seniority.

-One of the smart features of Smartflower is that it monitors the wind speedautomatically closing and stowing the solar panels in the event of high winds, making it the world’s first rugged, self-protected solar power system.

-Smartflowers can pair with electric vehicle charging systems or other solar arrays.

-Smartflower can act as a visible and inspiring landmark of the sustainability for many communities around the world.

Q: How did you get the idea to create Smartflower?

– The Smartflower was designed as a solution to the many problems posed by traditional rooftop solar power systems. Invented in Vienna, Austria, the founders wanted to produce an all-in-one solar solution that combines iconic design, superior performance, easy installation and effortless maintenance.

Q: What are the main characteristics of Smartflowers?

– The main feature of the Smartflower is its two-axis tracking system. At sunrise, Smartflower opens its panels to the optimum 90° angle to the sun and follows the sun’s path across the sky, producing up to 40% more energy than fixed solar panels. Its other smart features include remote monitoring capability, self-cleaning, and natural cooling ventilation, all of which maintain optimal performance and energy efficiency.

Q: How does self-cleaning work?

– On the back of each solar “petal” there are brushes that keep the modules free of pollen, dust and snow every time the Smartflower opens and closes.
