The concept What if you could invest in a solar energy collector that delivers 4 times more energy than any conventional PV panel? It is possible! Welcome to Solarus! The International Energy Agency (IEA) stated in their 2012 Solar Heating & Cooling Roadmap that PV-T technology (producing heat and electricity from one surface) is the most efficient way to capture energy from the sun and to solve rooftop competition. We fully agree! That’s why Solarus developed its PowerCollector™ with a concentrated PV-T technology that produces a high yield of heat and electricity. TÜV Arizona measured a record efficiency of 70%! Conventional PV-panels score only some 20% (Link). Year round our PowerCollectors deliver up to 4 times more energy than conventional PV-systems. Our achievement is widely recognized by the market: we contracted >30 projects (1.000 collectors) in 15 countries, in October 2016 we won the Accenture Innovation Award and recently two professional early stage investors committed, after an extensive due diligence, each EUR 2 million investments for the scale up of the business. This is adding up to EUR 8,4 million investments of earlier investors and a recent Eureka Eurostars grant of EUR 2,68 million (EUR 1,2 million direct for Solarus). We are on a mission. We market our solution to the world, fighting energy poverty and drastically reducing CO2 emissions. Business scale up is leveraged through a fast growing international network of distribution and assembly partners. This power helps us to make impact: one roof at a time and we are aiming for 400.000 PowerCollectors™ over the next three years. The world is in the middle of an accelerating energy transition from fossil to sustainable energy sources. The demand for sustainable energy is booming. Every year 50% of all the energy consumed in the world goes to the production of heat. That’s why the PowerCollector™ captures directly the heat from the sun (55%). And on top of that comes a bonus of electricity (15%). In situations with a need for heat and electricity the PowerCollector™ is the best choice for sustainable energy. We now offer you a unique opportunity to join an actual investment round of EUR 6 million for solar power champion Solarus. The company has a stable product, international market presence and high volume production facilities. We project a steep growth towards an intended IPO. It’s the ideal moment to ask the crowd to step in and have more ambassadors. We are asking the crowd to fund an amount of at least EUR 250.000 with the ambition to exceed this. You are kindly invited to be part of our growth! Unique Selling Points •highest solar energy yield per square meter (peak performance: 625 W(t) and125 W(e)) •best alternative for sustainable energy generation in case of limited (roof) space (densely populated areas) •unique features to tune the system for maximum winter/seasonal performance •one PowerCollector™ generates up to 4 times more energy than 4 conventional PV-panels of the same size •price per Wp installed is significantly lower than PV, up to 50% depending on the geography •world novelty: new model for ‘in roof’ PVT-application (your PowerCollector™ is your roof) •Swedish & Dutch robust design, reliable technology, 0% system degradation, > 20 year guarantee •product design completely tailored for automated/robotised mass production •enabling high quality standards, competitive pricing, high volumes •easy to adopt by international assembly partners •strong patents (link) and unique production technology makes it hard to copy •company with a mission (BCorp): fighting energy poverty and CO2 reduction Revenue model Solarus revenues are generated by: •Selling PowerCollectors™ (direct and indirect) •Selling assembly licenses to local assembly partners (upfront income and fee per unit). For 2017 we have 3 assembly factories planned, each bringing in EUR 1,8 million cash upfront •Selling PowerCollectors™ to financing companies (who lease the collectors to customers). We recently co-established MPower in South-Africa, a foundation that finances the energy systems for local housing projects Key in our business model are our local business partners in each geography. When we enter a country we select one or more distributors (mostly larger installers) ready to develop the market with us. When there is enough market potential we work towards setting up one or more assembly factories in the specific geography. Working with local business partners (distribution and assembly) is the multiplying factor in our business model. This is the real power that allows us scaling up very fast in the coming decade. Achieved so far In 2006 Solarus started in Sweden as a spin off of a thermal research team of Vattenfall. At that time the company focussed on producing heat collectors for the local Scandinavian market. Early 2009 the first concept of a Concentrated Hybrid PV-model was produced. That was the start of an intensive R&D track. •2011 Technology/Science ‘think-tank’ ZERI (Zero Emission & Research Initiatives) www.zeri.org elected Solarus #53 disruptive sustainable technology. •2012 TÜV Arizona (USA) Proof of Concept testing and measuring 70% efficiency. •2014 Solarus attracts Leen Zevenbergen as new CEO who starts building up market driven team, moves Solarus to the Netherlands and starts production facility •2014 Start with installing 30 flagship-projects/1.000 collectors/15 countries (2014-2016) •2014 Beijing Innovation Award at Jinghua University •2014 Start build up of strong patent portfolio of concept and applied technologies. •2015 Dutch company Solarus Sunpower Holding BV established •2015 Solarus becomes a certified B-Corp (Benefit Corporation) •2015 Moving to new production facilities and HQ in Venlo •2015 Solarus admitted membership Social Stock Exchange London •2015 Set up of international partnerships: South Africa, India, Turkey and Western Europe (Benelux, Spain, Italy, Switzerland) •2015 Establishment of Solarus office South Africa (Capetown) •2016 Sales campaign started (mid 2016), resulting in a huge global interest in the PowerCollector™ •2016 Design of PowerCollector™ ready for mass production •2016 Automated factory (2015/16) in Venlo producing the PowerCollectors™. •2016 Eurostars-Eureka grant for EUR 2,7 million (EUR 1,2 for Solarus) for research & development of new product versions and fully automated production lines •2016 Winner Accenture Innovation Award (2016), category Clean & Affordable Energy •2016 Additional new investments of EUR 440.000 by senior management and existing shareholders •2016 Commitment of EUR 4 million venture capital (NASA/Catena en OPEN to invest). •2016 December 2016: total of 2.500 PowerCollectors™ ordered for 2017 Required investment and purpose Solarus is entering its scale up phase. The PowerCollector™ is a stable and well tested product. And with the admission in September 2016 of an Eureka grant of EUR 2,68 million (EUR 1,2 million directly for Solarus) the future product development is guaranteed. We now have a financing round of EUR 6 million. Already EUR 4 million is committed by two professional early stage investors and another EUR 440,000 is invested by senior management and existing shareholders. With the crowd funding we are aiming to raise at least EUR 250,000 (or more). In the meanwhile we have continuous talks with parties that are lining up to join in the actual or the next financing round that we expect in second half of 2017. Most probably we start preparing for an IPO by the end of 2017. Our actual investment goals are: •completion of the automated production line to bring production time further down •preparation for a second production line in 2017 •participation/support in setting up 3 local assembly plants •marketing funds to achieve sales of 20.000 PowerCollectors in 2017 •working capital to further scale up production For the investor Recently two professional investors -NASA/Catena (NL) and OPEN (UK)- committed each EUR 2 million investments. And in September a EUR 2,68 million (EUR 1,2 million for Solarus) grant that was assigned by the Eureka-Eurostar program for further development of Solarus innovative technologies. With this substance we feel very confident to ask the public crowd to join in the fast scale up of the company. With a crowd funding in shares aiming at at least EUR 250.000 investment, representing a 1,7% in shares in Solarus Sunpower Holding bv, the company can further boost its activities for the upcoming year with a projected revenue for 2017 of EUR 15 million. For 2018 we are projecting revenues exceeding EUR 70 million. With the involvement of the crowd –money and word of mouth- Solarus gets more backing in achieving its mission to fight energy poverty and the emission of CO2. For 2017/2018 an IPO (listing) at the London Social Stock Exchange is planned. Offering a possible exit for early stage investors.
