With its One World Solar Collector, a component of the One World Solar System, Sunlumo was crowned winner in the category “Consumer Electronics” at the 2016 Green Product Awards.

Perg, July 13th 2016 – “The One World Solar Collector lays the foundation and is a key component for a complete and cost-effective solar system”, said Robert Buchinger. Sunlumo is one of the winners of the Green Product Award. The solar experts from Perg (in Upper Austria) competed with others in the category “Consumer Electronics” and impressed with their innovative and unique plastic-made system. The One World Solar Collector was assessed by an expert jury consisting of professionals in design, economy and industry, who praised its environmental friendliness, low manufacturing costs and clever utilization of solar energy. The system’s customer oriented product design and the smart mix of materials were also acknowledged. The One World Solar System represents the next generation of solar water heating that can either be implemented in established building systems or as an off-grid system. Furthermore, the system’s latest communication technology enables both continuous monitoring and optimization as well as direct interaction with the customer.
