SummaryIn this demonstration project, a grid-connected solar power system is applied in historical city centre of Delft. There are experiments with the application of solar power systems on the roofs of the ‘De Witte Roos’ [The White Rose] monument in Delft. In these experiments, the focus is on architectural integration and the integration in other renewable aspects. Among the project’s goals are communicating knowledge about and promoting research to architectural integration of solar power in monumental buildings. With the project, The International Institute for the Urban Environment (IIUE) wants to show that solar power can be applied to historical quarters very well. IIEU, owner of the building, has the role of information desk for renewable construction and renewable urban development. As an educational tool, the IIEU uses prominent buildings all over the world.
