Pilot Project for Innovative PV Solutions From Heliatek
Avoiding CO2 emissions wherever possible - GREEN also pursues this goal for managed portfolio properties of GARBE. The system can extend the lifespan and utilisation cycles of the properties and enhance the attractiveness of the locations long-term. Moreover, it can help avoid demolition, which is a waste of energy. If the installation of a conventional roof-mounted photovoltaic system is not possible on roofs due to insufficient static or structural stability, older buildings may be retrofitted in the future by mounting organic photovoltaic films laterally on their façades.
