On 9 September 2009, the first stone was laid for the project ‘De Wijk van Morgen’ (The Neighborhood of Tomorrow). This project originated as an education program at University of Applied Sciences Zuyd in Heerlen. Four energy-efficient and smart buildings and the public space at Avantis European Science and Business Park will be developed, realized, exhibited and operated in the ‘The Neighborhood of Tomorrow’.
A spearhead in this project is the theme of mobility. For this purpose, Avantis has purchased the PowerPark charging station for electric vehicles from Hermans Techniglaz. To this end, two PowerGlaz BIPV modules were integrated into the roof of the charging station.
