More energy from existing photovoltaic (PV) system

Climate-KIC Start-Up

Founding Year: 2013

Location: Greece

Necova develops an innovative product called “hp-necovery” aiming to upgrade already installed photovoltaic parks, offering increased park life and free hot water either for use or for heating.

The system is installed on the backside of panels and exploits the lost heat emitted from panels converting it into hot water.

The vision of Necova is to create and manufacture a series of products that will exploit every source of lost energy. We are dedicated to designing innovative, flexible and indigenous products which will first of all respect the environment.
