Solar Energy: The Source of the Future

Our lifestyle, and its demand for increasing energy consumption, is threatening our natural resources to unseen levels. Thankfully, with growing levels of consciousness, sustainability is one of the most important words in today’s World, and the key factor pointing us to the change.

Thus, renewable energies are gaining more and more relevance and becoming a trend in the most diverse business areas, as a way to help save the Environment.

In order to understand the importance of these types of energy, it is necessary to explain that renewable energy is obtained from natural sources with the capacity to regenerate (wind, solar, waves, geothermal, etc.) and are therefore, inexhaustible.

Obtained through the sun, and one of the most important natural renewable energy sources, solar energy, is the one that has grown the most in recent years. The potential of solar energy is exceptional when compared to all other energy sources. It is predicted that it will be the second largest source of energy generation in the world by 2050, accounting for 25% of the energy generated worldwide.

One of the main advantages of photovoltaic and solar thermal technology is that it has a lifetime of over 20 years, making it one of the most usable and promising sources in the World.

Solar panels can lose efficiency due to several factors, the main one being the reduction of the ability to absorb sunlight due to soiling.

Realizing the technology’s potential and the importance of panel cleaning and maintenance to maximize their production of energy, ChemiTek founds a clear gap in the solar industry.

Our product, Solar Wash Protect, has several features. One of them being the effective removal of organic soiling: bird droppings, pollen, dust, coal, etc. The product formula also provides additional protection to the panel at the end of the wash, giving anti-adherent properties to the solar glass thus reducing the accumulation of soiling, producing more energy in the following months.

So, it is easily understandable that chemistry has an irreplaceable role in solar technology maturation. To improve the efficiency and lifetime of photovoltaic cells, it is, undoubtedly, one path to take. Generally speaking, it is much more than that: it’s the answer to a low carbon and green World.
