Wattlab retrofitted the roofs of Picnic delivery vehicles with solar panels and power electronics. With the extra energy, one vehicle can do up to 25 extra deliveries a day!
The coming year we will monitor and analyse the energy yield of three pilot vehicles in Utrecht, Amersfoort and Den Haag. When succesful, Picnic will transform their complete fleet into a driving solar park.
In collaboration with Avy we develop an autonomous long distance wing drone on solar energy. The drone provides medication in remote areas, maps disaster areas, operates in search and rescue missions, and supports the protection of endangered wildlife and nature reserves.
The lightweight yet strong solar modules are integrated in the wing construction material and the power system is optimised for long endurance use. As the drone is self-powering, the drone can reach more people and serve larger areas in a shorter period of time.
Solar Team Eindhoven from the Eindhoven University of Technology has won the first prize in the Cruiser Class of the Bridgestone World Solar Challenge (BWSC) for the fourth time in a row. They completed the more than 3,000-kilometer drive from Darwin to Adelaide with the highest efficiency score of all teams. Also on the assessment of the solar car by a professional jury.
In October 2019, the Vattenfall Solar Team participates in the Bridgestone World Solar Challenge in Australia for the tenth time. During this 3000 kilometer long race, right through the Outback, Nuna will race only on the energy of the sun. The solar modules of Nuna X are produced at Wattlab.
As current world champion of solar racing, the Vattenfall Solar Team (formerly Nuon Solar Team) shows the world the possibilities of renewable energy, innovation and high-end technology.
We enable ship builders and owners to make use of the sun. We do this by integrating solar panels into the design of the ship and optimise the solar system to power the propulsion and electricity on board.Read more
We develop solar solutions that can be aesthetically integrated in facade, roof and window elements. Our lightweight technology enables installation without the need for heavy constructions.
We design and manufacture solar solutions for solar cars, public transport, (temperature controlled) freight and shared mobility services. Our solutions enable clients to increase the use range of their products as their batteries recharge themselves on-the-go.
By combining solar technology with lightweight and integrated material engineering we are able to develop multifunctional solar systems that provide flying objects with energy.
