HanTile is Hanergy’s rooftop solar solution while the solar backpacks are its creation of integrating solar power generation with backpacks.

The iF Design Award committee commented on the gold-winning triple-arch HanTile, “This product combines a traditional appearance with the latest energy breakthrough. These tiles represent the world’s most advanced thin-film solar energy technology. Any house or building covered in these roof tiles has the chance to be energy-self-sufficient or at least offset its energy footprint. The tiles have the look of glazed tiles and come in black or dark-green colours. This is the future of solar energy: integrated, efficient, attractive and unobtrusive.”

Solar backpack is another line of business for the thin-film manufacturer. By merging its unique solar thin-films with traditional backpacks, it creates a new category of smart bags.

The iF Award committee comments Hanergy’s Solartank, “This is much more than a backpack. It’s an energy collector that instantly responds to your need to recharge electronic devices using solar power technology. Edgy and masculine, the backpack is designed to support a technological, fashionable, creative mobile lifestyle. Available in either solar or conventional recharge options, this product waves goodbye to the traditional power bank. It is made of EVA, a high-strength, impact-resistant, water-proof and wear-resistant material. The specially designed shoulder strap USB means you don’t have to worry about tangled charging cables. The LED ultra-low power cold light panel ensures safe and visible cycling at night.”

Receiving the awards, Xie Tao, CEO of Hanergy’s Global Application Product R&D Center said, “We believe that these products make a perfect combination of advanced thin-film solar technology and sustainable product application, and the awards are an acknowledgment that Hanergy’s product design deserves to be at the forefront of the industry. We are honoured.”

iF Design Award is one of the world’s most celebrated and valued design competitions, recognised as a symbol for design excellence all around the globe. Previous winners include products such as Apple’s iPad Pro, Philips’ 2-in-1 Purifier and Humidifier and AKG Y100 Wireless Ear Buds.

Recently, the conversion rate of Gallium Arsenide (GaAs) technology manufactured by Alta Devices, Hanergy’s California-based subsidiary, set the world record for conversion efficiency several times, with the current rate standing at 29.1 percent.
