Solution: 12 OPV modules in the shape of a palm leaf
Integration: blue semi-transparent ASCA® solar modules integrated between 2 polycarbonate sheets.
Electrical system: battery charging
Location: Dubai, United Arab Emirates
Project duration: 3 months
The OPV Solartree® is a unique design installation - inspired by nature. It shows how flexible and aesthetically attractive organic photovoltaic is, compared to classical photovoltaic. The OPV Solartree® supports the regenerative and ecofriendly message of the area it is installed in.
Installed in Dubai, the 3-meter high, 2-meter span structure is shaped like a palm tree. It gathers 12 OPV modules of 90 centimeters length encapsulated between two polycarbonate sheets. They are attached to a metal trunk.
An energy self-sufficient installation
The Solartree® in shape of a banana tree accumulates energy in a power bank located inside the trunk. Bystanders can charge their mobile devices via a USB port directly at the OPV Solartree®.
In addition to charging electronic devices, the tree's leaves provide light through small LEDs attached to the tips of the leaves.
Both innovative and new, the Solartree® highlights the limitless possibilities offered by ASCA® organic photovoltaic technology.
