 Project objective

dhp technology is an award winning start-up in the energy sector which has developed the first and unique feasible application of photovoltaics in wastewater treatment plants (WTPs). HORIZON is a worldwide unparalleled retractable folding solar roof that can be utilised in already commercially exploited spaces such as parking lots, storage and logistics facilities, as it enables the production of solar power through dual usage. The dual usage of spaces preserves resources and allows for the production of solar power where it is needed most. The folding roof automatically avoids poor weather and retracts itself into a central garage, in a aesthetic, lightweight and economical manner. Horizon has been designed with the future in mind as it can be integrated into current and future trends such as IoT, smart mobility and smart grids. Our solution provides a solution to the increasing densification of our living spaces and eases the competition amongst industry, housing, cropland, recreational spaces and energy production. Horizon is a disruptive technology and it has no direct competing solutions which can achieve a similar dual function in the target markets. The two main applications of the folding solar roof are parking-logistics areas and wastewater treatment plants. The customers are municipalities, energy providers or land operators. High self-consumption remains at the centre for both segments, as well as additional benefits such as shade for vehicles, brand image or the compatibility with electro mobility charging stations. There is a technical potential of approximately 70MW on wastewater purification plants and 5GW on parking lots within the Swiss market. In Europe these are approximately 4GW and 300GW respectively in the same segments which corresponds to a market size of over €100 billion. Through the market entry in 7 EU markets, the HORIZON project will reach in in year 2025 revenues of €55’7M, and profit of €9’7M, generating renewable 80 MWp in 157 WTPs.
