Solar PV technology is a great resource for generating clean energy and making the world a healthier place, but it cannot be installed everywhere. Today’s photovoltaic modules are banned in some places due to their visual impact.
SOLAR INVISIBLE is the first photovoltaic technology capable of taking advantage of the advantages of renewable energies while respecting the beauty of buildings and landscapes. A new technology patented by Dyaqua, with which innovative photovoltaic modules can be created in different materials that look like real architectural elements.

Dyaqua’s invisible solar panels are like concrete bricks, slate tiles, terracotta, stone and even wooden planks, making a fusion of classical architecture with the most current renewable technology.
This product will allow buildings to be renovated to include renewable energy production without losing their historic charm. It is made with non-toxic recyclable materials. They include a top layer that is opaque to the eye, but allows the sun’s rays to reach the photovoltaic cells hidden inside.
Given the variety of materials and finishes, it can be used anywhere, roofs, facades, floors …
How do they work.
A highly resistant and indivisible layer hides and protects the photovoltaic cells inside. Invisible solar modules are a non-toxic and recyclable polymer compound, in which the monocrystalline silicon cells are embedded.
A special surface, opaque and transparent to sunlight, covers and hides the solar cells without affecting their operation.
How they are installed.
They have already started production of the tile, which is made to look like classic clay tiles. They recently launched a campaign on Indiegogo to fund their new designs.
At ecoinventos we have already talked about imitation solar panels: photovoltaic slate, from a Spanish inventor. A technology that was waiting for a company to launch in order to commercialize it. It seems the time has come.
