China desires green energy. According to, the Asian country has the biggest carbon dioxide emission in the world at the time, but their ambition is to become the world’s greatest green economy in the near future. However, this is a long road to take, and a Hungarian invention could be an important milestone on this road.

It fits into a briefcase, it can be hung over a window, and it is capable of heating up a whole room, or even a smaller house with solely solar energy. This is no sci-fi; this is a new Hungarian invention, a revolutionary new version of the solar collector. In inventor Péter Boda’s patent the technical part is what counts as an innovation: the liquid, which takes up solar energy and gets it into the heating system. The invention doesn’t only make solar collectors simpler and smaller, but also way cheaper.

And this could make solar energy a lot more attractive for users, since, if the construction of a new system costs a lot less than today, then it will be really worth changing to the greenest energies of the world. The Hungarian inventor’s idea could be mass produced in China with the help of the Hungarian Trade & Cultural Centre (HTCC).

A Chinese company called TIAN YUAN is seriously interested in the producer setting up a capacity in China for the Hungarian invention. The company has significant experience in garbage recycling and green economy, and, as managing director Li Jingchun said after his meetings in Budapest, a solar collector like this could perfectly fit into their current product range, and they would have the financial background to build a whole production line. He feels like the Hungarian invention wouldn’t only be a great success in the Chinese market, but their company would also be able to successfully merchandise it in the world market, as China is the biggest producer of solar collectors in the world anyway.

Péter Orosz, the network development director of HTCC told that the Chinese partners are not only interested in the solar collectors, but also other green projects, and that they visited several Hungarian cities to find potential partners.
