Valoe Oyj (”Valoe”) and a German company called Neuber GmbH (Neuber) have signed an agreement for the development, prototyping, pre-production, and mass production of a vehicle integrated PV System (VIPV).
In the first phase of the collaboration, Valoe will supply photovoltaic modules and mounting systems for six passenger and refrigerated transport vehicles. The first phase is worth about 120,000 euros and commences immediately. With the signed Agreement, Neuber also undertakes to place an order for the pre-series of Valoe VIPV, including solar modules for 100 vehicles. The value of this phase covering the pre-series production is about 700,000 – 1,100,000 euros depending on the vehicle model. Neuber plans to retrofit a large number of vehicles with the conversion kit each year starting in mid-2022.
Under the Cooperation Agreement, Valoe delivers photovoltaic modules to Neuber, who shall be responsible for the charging and optimization electronics related to the photovoltaic systems.
