SOLARBRUSH summarizes the events of 2013 in this review due to the relaunch of the website:

  • Completion of the hub:raum Accelerator and admission to Startup Chile Incubator
  • Discussion on entrepreneurship with Vice President of the European Commission, Neelie Kroes
  • Exhibition at the world's largest computer show, CeBIT in Hanover due to nomination of the code_n award
  • Winner of the hy! Berlin startup award to SOLARBRUSH in the "hardware" category
  • Exhibition at World Future Energy Summit in Abu Dhabi due to the nomination for the Green Energy Prize
  • Major attention and coverage from specialist as well as broad media outlets throughout the year



The Next Web:

"For now though, Hy Berlin’s was one of the first, and SolarBrush, essentially a Roomba for solar panels was declared the winner.  This robot ‘walks’ and jumps across solar panels to clean them in order to make them more efficient. As the device’s founder put it, “a fleet of robots to fight global warming.” SolarBrush is already seeing strong demand in parts of the world such as South America and the Middle East."

Berliner Morgenpost:

"Der zweite Preis (Hardware-Kategorie) blieb in Berlin: Ingenieur Ridha Azais (aus der hub:raum-Talentschmiede Betahaus) kehrte gerade von einer Messe in Abu Dhabi zurück, um seinen Solarpanel-Roboter auf der "hy! Berlin" vorzustellen. Staub kann die Effizienz von Photovoltaikanlagen bis zu 35 Prozent reduzieren. Abhilfe schafft Solarbrush, ein Roboter, der Photovoltaikplatten reinigt. Das Hightechgerät aus Berlin kann Dachneigungen bis 25 Grad bewältigen."
