About Platio Solar
“PLATIO” is an unconventional, primarily outdoor energy producing, modular paving system optionally equipped with information technological functions.
Platio provides an aesthetic and space-saving off-grid renewable energy system by integrating high-performance solar cells into attractive sidewalk paving elements made of recycled plastic. Electricity generated during sunshine hours can be stored by energy saving units or be used to operate functions integrated into the pavement or nearby electric devices of public places (public lighting, traffic control systems, other energy consuming street contrivances) independently from the grid.
Unlike other in-pavement integrated renewable energy technologies, Platio is easy to install and maintain, since it does not require a special foundation and also it is modularly upgradeable with several further smart functions.
