A Spanish technology-based company specialized in the design and development of sun sensors for high technology applications in aerospace and renewable energy industries, has developed a solar lighting system that can illuminate continuously, during solar hours, any space in homes or other buildings that need lighting. It provides great benefits such as comfort, natural lightening and warmth. The company is looking for commercial agency and distribution services agreements.
The technology-based company from Spain was founded in 2009 and is specialized in the design and development of sun sensors for high technology applications in aerospace and renewable energy industries. Due to its knowledge in this technology and its experience in the renewable industry, the company has developed a solar lighting system that can illuminate continuously, during solar hours, any space in homes or other buildings that need lighting. This solar lighting system is composed of: - A heliostat: 1.25 x 1.25 m., made of stainless steel and high reflectivity aluminum, - Two motors for rotation of the heliostat in two axes, - A high precision Industrial Sun Sensor (ISS) developed by the company (pointing error under 0.1 degrees), - A control box that contains electronics that runs the system, adaptable for automation integration, - An anemometer/security system to protect the main heliostat against strong winds, - A mirror: 1.25 x 1.25 m., made of stainless steel and high reflectivity aluminum. The total weight of this solar lighting system is about 80 kg, 50 of which are for the set formed by the heliostat, the two motors and the ISS. With this solar lighting system it is possible to get sunlight from the roof of a building to the windows of the inner courtyard -by reflecting the light through the heliostat and the mirror-, providing comfort, lightening and warmth of the sun into places previously not reached by the sunlight. This solar lighting system can be of great interest to companies or professionals working in the fields of architecture, construction, design and interior design, lighting design, etc. The company is looking for commercial agency and distribution services agreements in order to increase sales of its solar lighting system in the single European market and in international markets too. The company believes that this types of agreement are the most appropriate to reach its objectives. Furthermore, the company is firmly convinced that the European and/or international cooperation envisaged with these agreements will allow for sales growth and business development in mutually beneficial relationships.
Innovations and advantages
The innovative factor of this solar lighting system is the integration of Industrial Sun Sensor (ISS) for maximum precision pointing sunlight. In fact, it can direct the beam of sunlight to a specific point with less than 0.1 degrees error. This sensor technology makes the company´s solar lighting system different from any other in the world. In addition, by using photovoltaic sensors or through the integration with home automation systems, the company´s solar lighting system can improve the traditional systems of artificial lighting. Comfort, natural lightening and warmth provided by the sun into places not reached by the sunlight are the main benefits for the end users of this solar lighting system. Thus, prescribers or commercial intermediaries of this system could differentiate from their competitors by offering a solution that brings benefits and added value for end users.

Type of partner sought
The company is looking for commercial agents and distributors to represent and commercialize its solar lighting system. The commercial agents and distributors are required to have good knowledge of their local market and a long experience in their profession. It would be a decisive advantage if they have contacts with companies or professionals working in the fields of architecture, construction, design and interior design, lighting design, etc.
