Irish renewable heating specialists Evergreen Energy are set to launch a new  solar panel designed for typical Irish roofs at the Energy Show next week. The show, organised by Sustainable Energy Ireland, will be held  next Wednesday and Thursday, 29 and 30 May, in the RDS, Dublin.

"Any installer that is familar with the "universal" flashing kit will know how un-universal it is when it comes to a typical slate roof," Ned Gaynor of Evergreen says. "We have designed a flashing kit that is specific to Irish needs and will be as simple as integrating a velux  window."

The WF24 is a wooden-framed solar thermal panel with a dark finish.  "The finish on these panels make them integrate easily with the standard black roof used in Ireland," the company adds. "All sealing brackets are easily assembled and clip into position to allow for a  fast and professional installation."

Evergreen's Ned Gaynor told Construct Ireland speed of installation is  one of the panel's main advantages. "It's very very fast because of  the bracketing system. if you're putting it on a roof that uses the  synthetic slates you don't have to cut the batons out. You can just screw it straight in."

Evergreen offers its solar panels for sale to other Irish suppliers to  sell under their own branding. The company is currently rebranding panels for three different customers.  "They could buy directly from  the manufacturer but they'll have to buy a full container load. We're quite happy to ship out three or four kits at a time," according to Gaynor.

To see Evergreen Energy's new solar offerings visit the Austrian Trade Commission stand E8 at the Energy Show on Wednesday or Thursday.
