iWin: Proptech / Shading device producing clean energy

 

Buildings today consume still too much energy and have huge margin of improvement. IWin aims at improving the solar protection of the buildings, reducing the cooling energy and producing renewable energy within the window. They have developed and patented an innovative window solution that integrates thin, flexible film photovoltaic cells into window blinds, without compromising the design and the operation of the system. It protect buildings from overheating in the summer, reduces energy bills and produces renewable electricity. IWin is durable, thanks to its integration inside double-glazing units, and repays the initial cost in less than 10 years, faster than any other rival blind solution. They overcame the proof of concept phase and have deposited their first international patent. The first working prototype have been validated thanks to simulation analysis and the support of measurements. With their industrial partner, they validated the market number and the manufacturing feasibility together with a CIGS photovoltaic manufacturer. The Venture Kick funds will be used to finance in part the activities related to the implementation of the business plan like meetings, market analysis, scouting of competitors, surveys or participation to exhibition.
