A VAST AND BURGEONING MARKET

AS THE WORLD EMBRACES THE POWER EFFICIENCY AND SAVINGS PROVIDED BY CLEAN ENERGY, HELIIX’S GLOBAL MARKET OPPORTUNITY WILL CONTINUE TO EXPAND.

THE PRODUCT INNOVATION BEHIND PHAETHON ALLOWS HELIIX TO HELP SHAPE THE ENERGY LANDSCAPE OF THE FUTURE.

DO YOU KNOW THAT:


200 million households use solar hot water colectors

“Only in the US, there are approximately 100 million residential water heating systems and just under half use electricity, fuel oil or propane”

“World solar thermal capacity has increased 4 times since 2000”

Solar energy’s technical potential is immense, and since 2008 wholesale solar prices have dropped more than 83%, becoming even more accessible, opening up new global markets and new applications. It is projected that by 2035 one quarter of the world’s energy will come from nonfossil fuel sources.

There are over 470 million solar thermal collectors installed globally, a vast solar infrastructure that’s mostly unexploited. As the first domestic solar device of its kind, the PhaethonTM taps into this billion dollar industry, introducing a revolutionary technology that transforms thermal energy into lowcost, sustainable and clean electricity.

1st in Solar
In 2004, China invested $2 billion in renewable energy. Last year, the number was $56 billion, along with 12 GW of solar installed in China in 2013. For the first time, new renewablepower capacity surpassed new thermal (coal) capacity.

While China is leading the way in producing solar sourced energy, European countries are leading the charge in the production of energy from residential and commercial solar panel systems.

At the forefront of Europe’s energy evolution is Germany, with 51% of all its renewable energy, 50% of which is solar photovoltaic (PV), owned by individual citizens or farms, totaling $100 billion worth of private investment in clean energy. Germany now produces slightly over 20% of all its electricity from renewable sources. According to the European Commission, the EU aims to get 20% of its energy from renewable sources by 2020.

A 2014 study by Kingfisher, Europe’s largest DIY retail group, states that the number one priority of the 17,000 European households surveyed is improving energy efficiency, and that 1 out of 3 households intends to introduce measures that trim down their energy bills. Soaring energy bills are driving the EU household agenda, and clean, renewable energy is driving the global shift to solar energy.

In the past year, managementconsulting firm McKinsey & Company said that better and cleaner technologies are underpinning “a new industrial revolution”, while global powerhouse Deutsche Bank dramatically lifted its solarindustry demand forecast—predicting that a staggering 46 gigawatts of global solar power will come online this year.

Since 2008, the United States has increased its solar generation more than tenfold, and in 2013 solar panels provided about a quarter of new U.S. power generation capacity — second only to natural gas.
