German organic photovoltaic (OPV) solar film panels manufacturer Heliatek announced it has successfully completed its first installation project in South Korea. Together with strategic partner SAMSUNG Engineering, Heliateck intalled 160 m² of HeliaSol modules on the roof of a gangway between two large office buildings of SAMSUNG Electronics innovation campus in Suwon City near Seoul.
The Energy Division of Spanish infrastructure and renewable energy company ACCIONA has developed a pioneering solution at global level in the field of hybridization between wind and photovoltaic power. It consists of covering a wind turbine tower with flexible organic panels to produce energy for the internal electricity consumption of the turbine. The innovative project will allow the study of the performance of the organic panels, an emerging photovoltaic technology, and their application to improve wind turbine efficiency.
Europe’s first solar concrete wall was inaugurated last week at Reckli’s headquarter in Herne, Germany. The façade, designed by Reckli to fit Heliatek‘s organic solar film (HeliaFilm), represents a novel approach to Building Integrated Organic PV (BIOPV) and the next step towards a sustainable, net-zero energy building.
