Solar technology tests on low rise Vertigo

Last Wednesday saw the start of the construction of a small building on the low rise of Vertigo. The roof of the new building has built-in solar cells and solar collectors.

According to the initiators, it will be the first-ever research facility in the Netherlands that focuses on building-integrated solar technology. Five more test facilities will follow.

In the next few years, the Department of Built Environment and the Solar Energy Application Center will conduct research in the new buildings. This very first construction is meant to study the heating of solar panels, and the air behind the panels.
