PowerGlaz BIPV Hogeschool van Arnhem en Nijmegen

Hermans Techniglaz has supplied 137 BIPV solar panels to the Faculty of Education of the University of Applied Sciences of Arnhem and Nijmegen (HAN). The PowerGlaz solar panels have a total power of 22 kWp. In addition, 47 dummy glass panes were used where a connected panel proved not to be efficient enough to maintain the aesthetic quality. Due to the special shape, these dummy panes had to be made to measure.

Partly thanks to these BIPV solar panels, the building now complies with the sustainability requirements set by the HAN; an environmental index of at least 330 and an EPC of less than 0.5. This makes the faculty the most sustainable educational building in the Netherlands.

On 6 May 2014, the teachers and students moved to the new faculty.
