SolarLab works closely with architects and stakeholders to develop energy producing BiPV facade solutions for commercial and office buildings that are customized to every individual project. The facades are manufactured with a low environmental footprint in our European production facilities using sustainable energy and minimizing transport.
We build on many years of solar production experience, as well as in-house design and engineering capabilities to support you from the early design phase to final commissioning of the energy producing facade. This minimizes risk and ensures a final result that delivers both aesthetically and functionally.
SolarLab has years of experience in completing BIPV facades for a wide range of new-build and renovation projects. Some of these are showcased here, but it’s a rapidly moving world, so please contact us for more information about our projects and capabilities.
Sustainable architecture and nZEB buildings require onsite energy production. SolarLabs BIPV (Building Integrated Photo Voltaic) systems make this cost-effective and easily achievable, by replacing the classic facade with our maintenance free, durable and energy producing solar cladding.
As on-site power generation is increasingly required to comply with local building codes, our solar facades provides a cost-effective alternative that frees-up roof tops for bio-diversity and rainwater managing green roofs as well as social activities. Our solar facade provide a unique opportunity to show Net-Zero commitment with a solar facade manufactured in Europe using sustainable energy.
Replacing traditional cladding with our energy producing system, the facade will not only pay for itself in just a few years and continue to provide free and sustainable electricity for many years, but also return the energy and carbon-dioxide investment accrued in its creation.
The marginal cost of facade integrating high-efficiency solar technology, over a traditional facade cladding material is often less than adding the equivalent power capacity in a standard roof-top solar array.
Further more solar facades integration not only enhances storytelling potential, but allows for improved panel cooling and hence longer lifespan, as well as to spread the electrical production to fit consumption patterns better.
Our experienced team is ready to help in the creative process and as partner in the realization process we help to re-risk the critical path towards more sustainable architecture, from early pre-tender scoping and ideation to realization and commissioning.
