Calosol: more solar energy with new coating

In the EU, a total of 120 billion square metres – mainly on roofs and façades – are available for converting sunlight into electricity and heat. Together with partners, we’ve developed a method to transform façades into a source of energy. In this way, buildings can be made energy-positive relatively cheaply.

Solar energy is developing at lightning speed. The increase in efficiency is, amongst others, causing a cost reduction. TNO researchers, Eindhoven University of Technology and Delft University of Technology broke two world records on next generation so-called four terminal tandem devices (stack of two solar cells / sub-cells resulting in a better utilization of the energy in the solar spectrum).
