Pilot Project – Provinciehuis Overijssel
Soluxa tested its innovative product with grey/white panels on this façade of the Provinciehuis in Zwolle. The façade is located on the side of the Weezenlanden park.
The project came about through the “Startup in Residence” programme of the province of Overijssel. The façade consists of 60 panels, i.e. over 115 m² of cladding. The façade panels have a grey/white colour that corresponds to the existing colour of the building.
This project in Zwolle thus proved that the use of solar façades is of great added value in the built environment. In the Netherlands, façades can hold 2.5 times more solar panels than roofs. Solar panels on façades have many advantages. They form the cladding while at the same time generating up to 85% energy compared to solar panels on the roof. By placing the solar panels on the various façades of the building, you generate energy throughout the day. As a result, the power can be used entirely by the building and the grid is not burdened. The project was carried out in cooperation with, among others, major construction company Heijmans.
