Title: Heliostar - Photovoltaics for city buses and transport vehicles
High fuel prices combined with the trend toward greater electrification of vehicles, new energy sources to make the car very attractive. Roof-integrated photovoltaic modules ensure that the on-board electronics and the cooling unit will continue to be supplied with energy, without the engine running. This reduces fuel consumption, noise pollution increases and reduces CO2 emissions. Helio is the first production-ready Star photovoltaic roof module for integration into vehicles. The weather-and vibration-resistant modules are easy to integrate, are light weight and offer little wind resistance. The electronic control system optimizes the efficiency of solar radiation in winter and helps Heliostar as heating in the roof snow removal.
