WEBINAR THIN-FILM SOLAR TECHNOLOGY
MASS CUSTOMISATION FOR SOLAR INTEGRATION IN INFRASTUCTURE

Mass customisation for solar integration in infrastructure

Solar energy everywhere. Producing tailor-made products on a large scale and affordably, this is the future of solar energy. New ways to integrate solar panels so that they are invisible or, on the contrary, become an aesthetic part of a suitable surface.

Infrastructural works like noise barriers along motorways offer large areas and plenty opportunities to integrate thin-film solar cells, bifacial and tandem. Many hundreds of kilometers can potentially be equipped with this. TNO and EnergyVille already realised test sites with this technology.

Marc Koetse (TNO) and Michaël Daenen (UHasselt) will tell about the efforts both institutes put in the application of thin-film solar technology in this type of application and how large scale and affordable production technology can help.

The live webinar will be broadcasted at 09.00 Central European Summer Time (CEST) or 16.00 Japanese Standard Time (JST). The webinar will be replayed, accompanied with live chat and moderation by the experts at 09.00 Pacific Daylight Time (PDT).
