More about this product

Solar energy is a popular and environmentaly friendly method to power electric cars. Still an emerging technology, it has led to the development of new architectural typologies such as this Solar Carport by MDT-Tex.

MDT-Tex specialises in textile-membrane structures and has used their expertese to develop their type E tulip umbrellas into a solar charging station.

Solar Powered Carport | MDT-Tex

The tulip-shaped type E umbrellas have a central mast spanning 5.3 x 5.3 meters, providing a sheltered parking spot for up to two cars. Each tensile structure is equipped with 15 poly-Si solar panels that have a total installed photovoltaic power of approximately 4 kWp. With integrated fast chargers, the solar carport can charge a new BMWi3 to 80% in around 3 hours.

Although the horizontal arrangement of the solar panels slightly reduces the energy harvesting potential, the minimalistic design of the MDT-Tex solar carport hides solar panels from the side view making it as beautiful as it is functional.

The structure is collapsable and has several functions depending on the accessories chosen for each application:

  • Water harvesting and filtration
  • Shade for parking
  • Other shading
  • Electronic device charging
  • Solar E-car port
  • Solar E-bike port
  • Shaded seating
