Naked Energy Ltd is an award winning British design and innovation company specialising in solar technology and energy conservation. The company is redefining solar energy power with ‘Virtu™’ a revolutionary and patented hybrid solar panel that generates both electricity and heat for commercial and residential applications.

What makes the company’s unique product so compelling is the fact that it can create more useful energy per square metre than conventional technology. Not only does this mean a much quicker payback on investment, but it also has the potential to create a significant reduction in carbon emissions – for a small domestic installation the reduction is in excess of one tonne each year.
