SolarisKit is a limited company based in Edinburgh Scotland founded by Dr Faisal Ghani, a chartered mechanical engineer with almost fifteen years of experience in solar energy. Faisal started SolarisKit after realising that most renewable heating solutions are designed for developed countries who have access to more capital, resources, and skilled personnel. To tackle climate change while bringing up the standard of living of millions of people in the developing world, we need simple, affordable, and practical solutions. SolarisKit was born from this necessity.
Developed and tested at Heriot-Watt university, the SolarisKit collector has been tested using both indoor and outdoor facilities. We will be publishing data from our testing very soon.
We are currently semi-finalists in Scotlands Converge Challenge and have been selected for the Innovate UK Energy Catalyst mission to Kenya scheduled for July, 2019. We are based at the Edinburgh Centre for Carbon Innovation funded by the Climate-KIC programme and supported by the Edinburgh Business School at Heriot-Watt University.
