Since the summer we have been forging a relationship with Romag a UK manufacturer of high quality PV panels and speciality glass products. We are delighted to also be working with Doby Verrolec a leading UK specialist manufacturer of steel custom profiles . We will be bringing greater details of our collaboration and exciting plans for the launch of Virtu early in the New Year.

British Company Invents New Revolutionary Hybrid Solar Collectors
April 20th, 2012
Collectors Almost Twice as Efficient as Conventional Panels For most of its young life, the solar panel industry has remained flat, physically that is.
Discovery news; TUBULAR SOLAR PANELS CREATE ELECTRICITY, HOT WATER
April 12th, 2012
Look closely at these solar panels. They aren’t the flat panels commonly seen on rooftops, but arrays of tubular components.
These tubes, developed by Naked Energy, in Guildford, England, are a kind of hybrid solar-energy contraption that make more efficient use of the sun’s energy to produce both electricity and hot water.
The green economy speech David Cameron should give
April 12th, 2012
Take the British renewable energy firms working to make solar power cost effective.
Now, we are not known for our sunny weather in this country. But in Naked Energy we have a UK start up that has worked out how to maximise electricity and heat output from the sun that we do get. In Oxford PV, a spin out from our world-leading Oxford University, we have a company that is promising to deliver power-generating solar glass to the world’s skyscrapers. In G24i we have a Welsh company that is integrating solar cells into mobile devices in a way that means we will never have to charge them up again.
These technologies are not just clean, they are cool.
Naked Energy – Renewable energy: UK making global waves
April 10th, 2012
George Osborne used his Budget speech to set out his vision of a technology-driven industrial strategy, saying he wanted the UK to become “Europe’s technology centre”. “Today we also set Britain this industrial ambition. That we turn Britain into Europe’s technology centre,” he said.
The Sunday Times “Solar panels fit to go out in midday sun”

A new kind of cell is better at turning the sun’s rays into electricity, even when other designs overheat at noon
As Christophe Williams watched the sun set from his office window last Sunday, he received the news he had been waiting for.
Imperial College London had been carrying out tests on the photovoltaic solar panels his company, Naked Energy, had spent two years developing. The results were positive.
Researchers found that the Virtu panels they tested can produce up to 46% more energy than the typical solar panel on the market today.
Hybrid Solar Tube Panels by Naked Energy – March 2012
March 29th, 2012
A company called Solyndra pioneered the solar tube but this new invention by UK-based Naked Energy may just take cylindrical solar to a whole new level. Called Virtu, the product includes an integrated photovoltaic cell in a vacuum tube to generate both electricity and warm water at the same time. The setup keeps the PV cool to optimize energy production and maximizes space with a combined PVT solution.
