Called Nero, the black-coloured unit is 40 millimetres thick – as slim as a photovoltaic panel. According to the manufacturer, the aim had been to “reinvent the concept of solar thermal, since it is increasingly being integrated with other sustainable technologies, such as photovoltaic systems and heat pumps.” Nero’s width and length correspond to the dimensions of commonly available PV panels, which measure 1,640 by 990 millimetres.
