solar panel screens generate electricity and reduce noise | Breaking News

Solar panels on highway. The electricity generated can supply about 60 households. In totally there are about 68 noise absorbing screens fitted. The project with the name 'Solar Highways' is the largest of it's kind in Europe wherein electricity gets generated with the help of intergrated solar-noice reducing screens. The glass screens will be 5 meters high. In the upper 4 meter will e on both sides solarcells fitted. According Heijmans - a building & construction company - the screens are vandalism proof.

Dubbel sited solar cells along highway 50 in the Netherlands 

The highway A50 is choosen beause its ideal position and right time of 're-construction'. The present screens had to be adjusted at this moment. Also the location offers a great opportunity to apply bifacial solar cells because the surface of the cells are dirceted towards the East and the West.

Solar screens research

The noise reduction & solar screens will be monitored and tested by Rijkswaterstaat (the executing agency of the Ministry of Infrastructure and Environment in the Netherlands), the ECN (Energy Centre Netherlands) and the SEAC (Solar Energy Application Center) which monitor the installation for 18 month. This test is done for the technical and economical feasibility of this project.

Planning

At the start of 2018 of the construction is planned along highway A50 where also the noise reducing panels will be included. At the end the electricy generating will be connected to the grid.
