The energy transition is not a plan for the future, it’s the mission we must carry out now. This year has proved it already, with Europe overwhelmed with heat waves and shadowed by energy insecurity. SunRoof is on a mission of not only helping homeowners fulfill their own needs, but also contributing to the future clean energy infrastructure. I’m delighted that Klima is joining us as an investor and as a partner. The Klima team has already supported us in establishing relationships with strategic partners, who will help us to further develop and deliver an end-to-end decentralised and smart energy system to our customers across Europe,
says Lech Kaniuk, CEO & Co-Founder of SunRoof.
Housing and transportation electrification will be key to accelerate the energy transition, and we expect decentralized solar to play a significant role to enable this. For re-roofing and new built applications, the integrated solutions of SunRoof are an economical and environmental no brainer and this represents a multi billion addressable market. We are glad to partner with the very experienced and ambitious management team of Sunroof to power the houses and commercial buildings of the future,
says Lucille Bonnet, Managing Partner at Alantra Energy Transition.
SunRoof builds powerful 2-in-1 solar roofs and innovative façades that generate electricity, replacing the need of a traditional roof. SunRoof is a smart investment and functional roof providing an efficient energy solution with an uncompromising elegance. Our mission is to speed up the global transition to renewables by developing elegant roofs that, by generating electricity, will cover the energy demand of the entire building. SunRoofs ambition is to provide solar roofs with the lowest carbon footprint on the market.
