The world’s first commercial solar powered building material called “kings” is being used in a project to build a hub in central Argentina.
The hub, which will be part of the city of Patagonia, will be built by a consortium of architects, engineers and builders, and is the world’s largest solar-powered hub.
The building material is made from solar panels and it is being produced by Solar Power Solutions (SPS), a global company that produces solar panels for building materials and solar power plants.SPS CEO Juan Pablo Boudin said in a statement that the solar panel technology was “in the early stages” of development and the hub would be the largest solar powered city in the world.
“This is an important step toward building the first commercial, renewable energy hub,” he said.
“A hub for a new technology is important to the future of technology.”
Boudin has previously said solar power was a way of connecting Argentina to the world outside its borders.
The solar panel is made using a solar cell, which is composed of a single layer of carbon nanotubes.
Carbon nanotube materials are made by splitting a single atom in two.
The nanotub material can be used to make the carbon-containing carbon in a solar panel, which can then be attached to a structure using electrical currents.
Solar power is a major technology in Argentina, and Boudis said solar panels would be installed in the new hub.
Boudins previous company, Boudins and Company, was founded in 2015 by a group of Argentina’s wealthiest families, including the founder of SPS.
The city’s project was awarded a US$10 million contract by the United States Department of Energy (DOE) to help develop the new city’s infrastructure.
“We are delighted to be partnering with our partner, Solar Power, to create the world-class hub that will create a new center of energy, prosperity and opportunity in Argentina,” Patagonian President Luis Alberto López Obrador said in the statement.
Sessions of the new solar hub will include the installation of solar panels, which the consortium said would be used for lighting and heaters.
“The technology is advanced and the infrastructure is ready to make this a reality,” said Jorge Luis M. Castellano, the consortium’s president.
“It will allow us to provide for the basic needs of our citizens, including healthcare, education, public transport, healthcare, housing and much more.”
Solar power also can be applied to energy storage, as well as to buildings that are being designed, the statement added.
Solar panels can be made from a variety of materials, such as solar cells, glass, ceramic, graphite and glass, which are all highly effective at converting sunlight to electricity.
The development will be a major step for solar power in Argentina as it is expected to become more competitive in the country as the cost of solar technology continues to drop.
