Valldoreix Greenpower welcomes students from Universitat Pompeu Fabra on its test field during “Rubí Brilla for World Energy Day”.

  • Valldoreix Greenpower has taken part in the activities dedicated to the Wold Energy Day opening the doors to its test field.
  • Mayoress of Rubí, Carme Garcia, joined the visit of the photovoltaic company.

Yesterday, seven college students from Universitat Pompeu Fabra studying Public and Social Policies, together with Mayoress of Rubí, Carme Garcia, visited the place where the company Valldoreix Greenpower is testing CPVRS: its new CPV system. Ricard Pardell, CEO of the company, received them to show the system operation and to expose them all its advantages.

The tour was part of the activities of World Energy Day, an event dedicated to energy efficiency and renewable energies. For two days, several activities were developed to study and propose changes in energy models: conferences, lectures and the “Fair for entities and associations promoting renewable energy and responsible consumption” for experts and enterprises; and documentaries, workshops and children’s activities for citizenship.

CPVRS system presentation has been an interesting contribution to the event, as it is a highly efficient technology and a new business model which offers great benefits both for society and environment.

CPVRS system obtains a 30% efficiency, thus doubling the traditional photovoltaic models efficiency. This technology has been fully developed in Catalonia and Valldoreix Greenpower has four own patents that protect it internationally.

In addition to its high efficiency, CPVRS technology developed by Valldoreix Greenpower enables a new business model that optimizes logistics, greatly enhancing the growth potential of the Catalan company. The system is designed to be assembled at decentralized facilities, relying both to industrial and commercial level on working together with local partners in the various target countries for this new product.

The potential of the company approached both the organizers of the event and the Mayoress of Ruby. During the visit, Ricard Pardell explained to the visitors the CPVRS system operation and also showed them the great advantages over traditional PV systems, highlighting the possibility to assemble the system in the destination countries, thus creating skilled jobs in those countries.

After the talk, took place an interesting debate which involved both students and the major and where they could talk about political and social issues related to energy and where everyone could expose his personal opinion.

The Mayoress of Ruby, Carme Garcia stated that “we have to be positive about renewable energy and to have hope, they are the future”. Meanwhile, Ricard Pardell, said there is still a long road ahead.
