Soltech becomes a partner of Sweden’s Pavilion at Expo 2020 Dubai – carried out in 2021!

Soltech becomes the official partner of Sweden’s pavilion at Expo 2020 in Dubai and will showcase innovative solar energy solutions for solar roofs and solar panels on the Sweden's pavilion – investing in solar energy for the world exhibition fits well into the exhibition's theme "Connecting Minds – Creating the Future". Sweden's pavilion is located in the area of Sustainability. Expo 2020 will be the Swedish government's single largest investment in export and investment promotion.

At the Swedish pavilion "The Forest", 500 m2 of the roof will be covered by Soltech's product "ShingEl" and 500 m2 of the facade with Soltech's product "Facade". The pavilion is based on the idea of the extensive freedom and wilderness in a forest. With renewable solar energy on roofs and facades, the energy solution is also endless and fits well with the pavilion's concept and the message that Sweden wants to send to the visitors of the Expo. For Soltech, the collaboration means not only exposure but also a positive business value.

– “We need to prepare for a reality where the world, Sweden, and companies are resuming operations and where everyday life is returning to normal after the Corona crisis. It is important to be able to show long-term sustainable solar solutions that are aesthetically pleasing and adapted to modern design and architecture. We are confident that the exposure and attention that our products will receive in Dubai will lead to exciting business opportunities both in Sweden and internationally, says Stefan Ölander, CEO of Soltech Energy

The products "ShingEl" and "Facade" have integrated solar cells with a design that makes the roof and facade both stylish and energy efficient. The possibilities of integrated solar cells are many and it is a market with rapid growth and great needs. The target group for "ShingEl" is both villas and commercial properties. Facade is especially suitable for properties with larger areas such as factory and logistics premises or cool schoolbuildings and sports arenas.

– We are very pleased to have signed an agreement with Soltech as our sponsor for solar energy. Their integrated products will fit well into our futuristic design of the pavilion, says Staffan Schartner, Head of Construction on the Committee for Sweden's Participation

It is with both joy but also a portion of thoughtfulness and careful consideration that the agreement has been signed in these times of Coronavirus. At the same time, it is proof of Soltech's drive and ambitions. Of course, all planning and participation in Expo 2020 in Dubai will continue to follow the guidelines provided. The World Exhibition is postponed and will take place between October 1, 2021 and March 31, 2022. The name Expo 2020 will remain.
