This video will make you discover Solar Energy innovations at SolarBEAT!

You can watch the video of SolarBEAT by clicking here. Solar Building Elements Application Test site (SolarBEAT), is the name of SEAC’s outdoor research facility in the field of BIPV(T) where independent measurements and innovative research studies in the field of solar PV and solar thermal energy are conducted. It is a collaboration between SEAC […]

SEAC’s field testing facility SolarBEAT is fully booked!

Dutch companies are rapidly bringing new building integrated solar systems to the market. This explains the increasing need for high quality performance research on such systems. SEAC works in the outdoor test facility SolarBEAT fully based on IEC-61724 norms. To support these field testing needs, SEAC developed a brand new pyranometer calibration setup. It comprises […]

ZigZagSolar façade installed in Sittard

This month the installation of a creative ZigZagSolar façade was completed on an apartment building in Sittard. The concept enables in an original way to harvest solar energy and at the same time have full aesthetic freedom. The ZigZagSolar concept is developed by WallVision with the support of SEAC. It went through extensive field testing […]

Invisible solar collectors can even be red or white

The first demonstration of the novel façade solar thermal collectors of the FITS4E project has been installed at the outdoor testing location SolarBEAT. The project aims to demonstrate façade panels with an invisible thermal solar collector for increased energy harvesting. ‘FITS4E’ focusses at application development, system design, performance testing, demonstration and dissemination. The performance of the […]

SEAC presents the BIPV Status Report 2017

SEAC and SUPSI presented the new version of the BIPV Status Report at the recent EU PVSEC conference in Amsterdam. The report provides a comprehensive insight into the status of building integrated solar energy in Europe. The report is a result of a long term cooperation between SUPSI in Switzerland and SEAC in The Netherlands. […]

Meet SEAC at the upcoming PVSEC conference in Amsterdam

The European PVSEC conference will be 25 – 29 September in Amsterdam. It is the largest international conference for photovoltaic research, technologies and applications. An excellent occasion to learn more about the work of SEAC and get into contact with us. SEAC will be (co)presenting on various topics: PV on landfills (6DO.12) BIPV (6DO.10, 7DV.1) […]

ZigZagSolar pilot with flexible thin film PV

ZigZagSolar is an innovative façade BIPV application designed by Wallvision BV. It consists of tilted PV modules in combination with decorative panels. This layout allows for an optimal orientation of the PV modules, while they remain out of sight. We created on the SEAC BIPV research facility SolarBEAT a new pilot in this concept, now […]
