Parans was founded in 2003. The first version of Parans’ patented technology, the Parans system, was commercialized in 2004. The technology was developed through extensive R&D in collaboration with Chalmers Technical University in Gothenburg, Sweden.
The founders of Parans had a strong passion for innovation and how technology could improve the world, but also how you could use the nature as inspiration to develop the technology; like a sunflower following the sun during the day using the sun maximum to prosper. The Parans system was conceived from a desire to improve the possibility of bringing sunlight into classrooms and to improve the indoor environment. There were also a desire to help the construction industry to use materials effectively in the construction of large buildings, without compromising the amount of natural light in the building.
Today when the world aim to reduce its footprint, Parans’ solution is more topical than ever. To use the sun as a light source is healthy, sustainable and smart. Parans Light bring natural light deep into buildings, redefining the definition of windows. Increasing energy levels and productivity among employees while opening up new possibilities within the building. Parans has today the fourth product generation Parans system – SP4 – on the market, with the ability to lead the sunlight 100 meter in and through a building. This means 30 floors down. This product area, is mainly offered by Parans to property owners, architects and larger employers worldwide.
In 2020/2021 Parans added two more product areas – IOT Street Lights and 5G Smart Towers – to its product range. Parans has now two sites: Parans Solar Lighting AB in Sweden and its fully owned subsidiary Parans Light Technologies Ltd in China (PLT). IOT Street Lights and 5G Smart Towers are promoted and sold on the Chinese market via PLT.
Parans’ financial instruments can be traded on Bequoted’s OTC list.
Sweden Green Building Council (“SGBC”) is Sweden’s leading organisation for sustainable built environment.
SGBC’s members are companies and organisations that want to develop and influence the development of buildings to be more sustainable. We have chosen to become a member of the Sweden Green Building Council as Parans protects the values that SGBC stands for and sees sustainability, both in terms of people and the environment, as an important issue. How the real estate and construction sectors use and utilize resources and which material is chosen, including the use of renewable energy resources such as the sun, is of great interest to us. SGBC is a member of the World Green Building Council (“WGBC”) which has more than 90 councils worldwide as members and who work hard for a sustainable built environment.
We have to work together and learn from each other in order to make less impact on the environment. For Parans, it is natural to talk about using renewable resources, such as the sun, to the greatest extent possible. There is potential to reduce carbon dioxide emissions tremendously by using innovative technology such as ours and at the same time, gain the benefits from natural light for our well-being.
