SummaryIn this market introduction project, NUON wants to gain experience with the application of large solar pv systems on buildings of renewable energy customers. On three different locations, which are Adverium Drachten, Stadskantoor Culemborg and Gemeentewerf Wageningen, the possibility of solar pv systems is optimally used during the construction of new buildings. The Adverium in Drachten is a consulting and information centre. In its building, all the aspects of living and constructing are united in one place. Partly, the solar pv system functions as a sunscreen at an inclined, 20-meter-high, glass wall that can be seen from the A7 highway. About 260 m² of solar panels are assembled to the glass wall. About 122 m² is integrated in the roof of the office wing.
