At SunCurtain, we want to actively contribute to the energy transition by harnessing the power of the sun in a practical and efficient way. With the SunCurtain vertical blinds, with integrated organic photovoltaics, every window of every building can produce its own electricity.
Founded in 2018, SunCurtain GmbH is a company with a sustainable vision. SunCurtain turn every window into a small power plant. This is made possible through the use of organic photovoltaics. We see an enormous market for such energy-generating shading elements.
“If we want to increasingly portray electrically powered functions as energy sources in future, we need to do something to diversify our energy landscape.“

The many positive effects will have a lasting impact on building efficiency. It’s not just a matter of having a power plant on our windows; it’s a smartly used system that attempts to solve all manner of problems. We want our product to change the way people think about curtain systems.
Different colored, semi-transparent slats only let a certain amount of visible light through, while heavily reducing ultraviolet and infrared radiation, which in turn benefits indoor climate conditions. Light filtration makes a pleasant lighting.
The print process used for manufacturing makes it easy to adapt designs and formats. Plus: The curtains produce electricity, which is fed directly into the building’s local grid or can be buffered to a battery, and its easy installation means it can also be used on existing structures.
