Circular Solar Design
Reusable facades that generate energy
Making buildings circular with solar design
It's Circular Economy Week, a time to reflect on our impact on the environment. We aim to make a significant contribution to reducing our impact with smart, beautifully designed, and active facades that generate energy. This also involves the goal of making buildings circular, minimizing the use of natural resources (sustainable materials, recyclable) and maximizing potential (sustainable energy, data, and reuse).
New generations of circular solar panels
We are constantly seeking the latest techniques for the new generation of solar panels. We are developing a new material with fully integrated solar cells. These lightweight biocomposite facade panels are made from natural materials and thin-film solar cells. This not only limits the use of raw materials but also ensures that the materials we use are primarily natural and can be largely reused.
Smart residential area with circular solar design
Circularity plays a crucial role in our project in the Brainport Smart District. We prioritize energy generation in the design, creating value for the environment. The concept we aim to apply in this smart residential area involves a combination of modular wooden houses and a modular, intelligent, energy-generating facade system. The facade elements are easy to assemble and disassemble, allowing for alternative forms of reuse.
