Clickcells: a new concept of solar module
Nousol, a young start-up from Catalonia (Spain) has developed ClickCells, a versatile small solar module with a promising range of applications.
The cells may be assembled through a patented system that brings to mind a game of building blocks, such as Lego. They may be quickly and easily interconnected by any of their faces, allowing ample freedom to choose shapes and color combinations.
Xavier Pérez, of 26 years, is the founder of Nousol, together with his brother Baldomero. The novel product won the second prize in the Technological Innovation category of the “Negoci”2005 Awards, sponsored by the Polytechnical University of Catalunya (UPC).
The main advantage Clickcells offer is their versatility in the way they may be fitted in spaces where a traditional solar module may not. Besides, they introduce an aesthetical element in the choice of the color setup more to our fancy.
