Welcome to the SUNSET Solar Solar Roof Cairo

at the Deutsche Evangelische Oberschule (DEO, German School Dokki)


SUNSET Solar has implemented a Solar Roof Project in Cairo at the Deutsche Evangelische Oberschule (DEO, German School Dokki) in cooperation with the KACO Gerätetechnik GmbH. On the German School's roof three different solar systems are installed, representing the wide range of solar applications possible.

Thanks to the solar systems the school is able to cover its energy needs environment-friendly. A solar thermal system on the rooftop of the auditorium heats up the tap water and supports the school's heating system. The photovoltaic systems on the rooftop of the sports hall and on the facade towards the main entrance produce electricity for the illumination of the classrooms and for electronic equipment of the school. A solar pump system which had been installed in one corner of the sports field provides groundwater for the irrigation of the sports facilities. Two displays next to the main entrance of the school are informing about the actual irradiation, about the amount the electricity and heat generated by the photovoltaic and the solar thermal system and about the avoided CO2 emissions.

The project is implemented as part of the Solar Roofs Programme of the Deutschen Energie-Agentur GmbH (dena) the German Energy Agency. It illustrates the advantages and possibilities of solar applications in Egypt and showcases solar technology "made in Germany", an innovative, high quality and sustainable technology.

After Namibia, Singapore and Shanghai the Solar Roof Cairo is SUNSET Solar fourth successfully implemented project under the framework of the dena Solar Roof Programme.
