SEAC presents the Solar Highways project at the Innovation Expo 2016

Together with our partners ECN and Rijkswaterstaat, we will present the Solar Highways project at the Innovation Expo 2016 in Amsterdam. In the project, a 400 meter long photovoltaic noise barrier will be built along a North-South oriented highway. To maximize solar energy yield, fully integrated bifacial solar cells will be used that can use […]

ZonneGEVEL prototype facade on SEAC facility

The prototype test facade of the TKI project ZonneGevel was successfully installed on the SEAC facility SolarBEAT. At this test facade, two companies installed their innovative BIPV facade concept. In the lower part of the facade, the company SCX-Solar demonstrates the product SoloWall using framed thin film PV. In the upper part of the facade, […]

Scalable Shade Tolerant Module project kicks off

Penetration of Solar PV systems in the built environment is progressing rapidly the past years. The two key inherent problems of solar PV systems that hamper rapid growth are the size availability and power losses due to irradiance mismatches from the horizon or close obstructions such as dormers, chimneys etc. that cast shadows on the […]

Interreg project PV OpMaat: now open for company partnerships

More than one hundred developers, manufacturers, architects, builders and politicians came together during the BIPV workshop last Tuesday in Eindhoven. The workshop was organized in the framework of the Interreg PV OpMaat project. After the official opening act (picture) and several guest lectures, an interactive creative session was held. The project is now open for […]

Project ‘BIPVpod’ kicks off

The TKI iDEEGO research project ‘BIPVpod’ has started. The project aims to make tailor-made thin film solar panels available for aesthetic integration in buildings. Three competing BIPV developers work together with research institutes SEAC and Solliance to develop the required ‘panel on demand’ manufacturing technology. International collaboration is achieved via a sister BIPVpod project filed […]
