A new era for roofs

SunRoof is the most efficient and environment-friendly solar roof on the market. Our underlying objective is to replace all roofs with SunRoofs that will produce enough electricity for people around the globe, ensuring a future where we can thrive together with nature.

The revolutionary concept for solar roofs came to life in Sweden in 2013, based on the opportunities that solar technology offered at that time, coupled with the high-quality Swedish design. The functionality of our roofs sets new standards, as they protect, insulate and ventilate houses, and produce electricity at the same time. Integrated with the whole structure of the building, they are simple, lightweight, and easy to install thanks to novel and specially designed materials and fittings that entirely substitute multiple-layer roofs. SunRoof’s matching panels and trims make for a coherent and highly elegant structure. With the eye-catching modern look and the ultra-smooth solar panel surface, SunRoof is an innovative solution like no other.

Setting a new standard in construction – the ACTIVE Home

ACTIVE Home brings a new quality in energy-independent buildings, with the underlying idea of a harmonious relationship between three aspects that are key for man: comfort, energy, and the environment. Original solutions allow for maximum consumption of electricity produced by SunRoof, thereby satisfying the electricity demand of even the most demanding residents. The technology that enables smart energy management makes life easier and more convenient. SunRoof, with the lowest carbon footprint in the world, is a testament to our dedication to the environment and future generations

Possibilities of SunRoof worldwide

We want everyone to have access to SunRoof, an eco-friendly and extremely efficient solar roof. We create innovative technologies and purposefully present our vision of a world of sustainable energy in other countries.

After our success in Sweden, equipped with knowledge, experience and strong funding, we are expansing into global markets.

SunRoof Technology

SunRoof’s R&D centre is a place where we develop the best Scandinavian models to improve our innovative solar roofs, and where we introduce environment-friendly novelties into the global market. We create the technologies of tomorrow to build a future based on renewable energy sources.

Our team of world-class experts works on advanced technologies and tests new solutions. We carry out R&D projects in:

BIPV – developing new designs, materials, manufacturing processes, and solar systems to maximize efficiency

Functionality – developing technologies, including our de-icing system which ensures that the whole surface of the roof stays free of snow and ice, guaranteeing the right amounts of energy

Aesthetics – ensuring that our SunRoofs are in a class of their own in design, working on colour, shape, and materials to make every SunRoof a unique product.
