Integrated solar and safety

The area that we can use to generate solar energy in the Netherlands is large and continues to grow. We develop solar energy concepts for optimum integration into buildings and infrastructure, on water, in combination with agriculture, and on vehicles. New products and applications also bring new safety challenges.
