Energy-collecting Roof / Roof

Energy-collecting Roof
Energy-collecting Roof

This is a kind of energy-saving roof that can be realized through morphological changes: solar power generation, rainwater collection and daily exhaust. Energy-collecting Roof was designed as two spliced tiles to accommodate the construction of different types of roofs, where the solar panels on the surface of the tiles absorb energy; When it rains, tiles turn over, the retractable catchment begins to collect rainwater, which is filtered by the filter system at the bottom of the roof and stored as domestic water.
