The company said that its project received strong support from most shareholders, but failed to raise enough funds at the end of last year.

In October 2017, SunPartner Technologie received a €15 million financing from the European Investment Bank and a manufacturing facility in Rosette. These funds are used to build commercial infrastructure, research and development investments, and further expand capacity.

Among other products, the company has developed a solar window called Horizon D and a solar glass curtain wall called Horizon E. Both products were designed in collaboration with Vinci Construction in 2016 and have signed a cooperation agreement with Avancis, a German BIPV specialist.
