BME Partnering With Terran to Develop Solar Roof Tiles

Science

Hungary's Terran is partnering with the Budapest University of Technology and Economics (BME) on a HUF 828 million project to further develop and expand its offering of roof tiles with integrated solar panels, according to origo.hu.

Terran said the partners were awarded HUF 422 mln in support for the project from the National Research, Development and Innovation Fund. Terran and BME are developing a modular system that allows existing solar tile roofs to be expanded easily and damaged tiles to be replaced piece by piece.

A prototype of a terracotta-colored solar tile that will complement the company's existing black Generon-brand tiles has already been made. The three-year project will finish in November.

Terran sold over 100,000 Generon tiles last year, the company said. It can turn out around 550,000 of the solar tiles a year.

The firm had net sales revenue of HUF 19.4 billion in 2021, according to public records.
