Bolymedia Holdings Co. Ltd., a global high-tech company headquartered in Silicon Valley, is pleased to announce its latest technology for renewable energy at the Chinese Renewable Energy Conference November 3, 2016 in Wuxi, China.
BolySolar is a complete set of solar system technologies that will revolutionize the energy industry. At CREC 2016, Boly will announce its third product of BolySolar Concentrators – BolySolar Roof.
In the diagram, the BolySolar Roof shows two application scenarios: one for buildings and the other for highways.
The patent-pending BolySolar Roof utilizes a reflective Fresnel lens technology to concentrate light into the focal area which can be mounted in the attic of the roof. The Fresnel lens can be linear or concentric, depending on the need of concentration ratios and the orientation of the roof. The above diagram is one of many mounting scenarios.
This simple design brings forth many advantages.
In addition to applications in residential and office buildings, the technology can also be applied to highways. "In contrast to other solar highway proposals, we recommend a Solar Shade solution using our technology," says Dr. Xiaoping Hu, CEO of Bolymedia Holdings Co. Ltd. "A Solar Shade is not only more economical than a solar highway, it is more durable, and 2-4x more energy efficient. Also, for a highway going east-west bound, or when there is heavy snow, rain, or fog, a Solar Shade makes the highway much safer. Sun-glare, snow, rain, and fog are the some of the many causes of accidents. A Solar Shade is a solution to these problems, and the cost of a Solar Shade can be paid off in two to three years from electricity generation and reduced highway service needs. With smart sensors, a Solar Shade can change the driving experience."
