The Parans system uses fiber optics to capture the rays of the sun and take them deep into buildings, creating skylights even 30 floors down, which helps to reduce costs and CO2 emissions from lighting.
Parans Solar Lighting’s system brings sunlight into the indoor environments where people work, learn and live. The technology uses fiber optic cables to transport sunlight from the roofs where panels track the sun throughout the day, down throughout the building and into rooms which lack natural light. The thin and flexible cables make it simple to install in new buildings or retrofit into existing buildings, bringing down lighting costs and carbon emissions.
Why you should care
Many buildings have been designed so that artificial light is needed throughout the day in many rooms, significantly increasing the energy demand of buildings. Parans’ solution allows buildings to be retrofitted to use sunlight directly for illumination, enhancing the quality of indoor environments and reducing energy demand.
