Heliene Greenhouse Integrated Solar Modules
Low cost, clean energy for sustainable food systems.
When solar power generation meets agriculture: Greenhouse Integrated PV
As food demand rises in line with global population growth, especially in urban areas, producers are also grappling with how to sustainably protect crops from adverse climate conditions and rising costs. Many have turned to greenhouse farming techniques to ensure food quality and output. The blooming greenhouse horticulture market is expected to reach $50 billion by 2028. At the same time, energy costs, grid constraints and public policy are fueling growth in on-site solar generation.

Save on costs and cut carbon with Greenhouse Integrated Photovoltaic (GiPV) Modules
Traditional greenhouses rely on external fossil fuel derived energy sources to power lighting, heating and forced cooling. Specially designed BiPV solar glass modules for greenhouses, Heliene’s Greenhouse Integrated PV (GiPV) modules offer a sustainable alternative with no additional racking or support required. Replacing the glass panels on greenhouse roofs, Heliene’s GiPV modules allow greenhouses to run on 100% renewable energy which dramatically reduces energy bills – up to 40–60% savings according to some estimates.
Advanced solar glass optimizes plant growth with high power efficiency
Heliene will be launching a second generation GiPV module in Q3 2022 that’s designed to enhance plant growth while also maximizing electricity output. We’re leveraging UbiQD, Inc.’s UbiGro® sunlight optimizing technology in our solar glass. Quantum dot glass converts the sunlight’s photon wavelength from a crop-damaging UV into the orange and red wavelengths that optimize photosynthesis conditions for more abundant, high quality crop yields.
