SUSTAINABLE SOLAR ENERGY APPLICATIONS
The sun has huge potential to supply us with energy. It’s a sustainable alternative to the current fossil fuels we use. Brainport is a leader in the smart use of solar energy. For example, the technology developed by the research centre Solliance enables solar cells to be processed into materials for cars or buildings. The many prizes won by the Eindhoven University of Technology's ‘Stella’, the world’s first solar-powered family car, are proof that this region is delivering innovation that will impact our energy consumption. The next challenge is to store solar energy. The Brainport ecosystem can contribute to global developments in this kind of application - that leads to a more balanced energy production and a better environment.
