Europe’s first solar concrete wall built in Germany

Europes first solar concrete wall was inaugurated at Reckl’s headquarter in Herne, Germany. The façade, designed by Reckl to fit the solar film from Heliatek (HeliaFilm), represents a novel approach to building integrated organic solar panels.

This solar active concrete wall is the result of a joint development project of Reckl and Heliatek. With an installed power of 1kWp, the south-west oriented wall will supply around 500 kWh of electricity per year. The energy produced will be used directly by Reckli.

The annual energy output is expected to be about 25% above the yield of silicon technology. Heliatek has already shown that its solar film, HeliaFilm, delivers more energy under overcast sky conditions and at high temperatures compared to traditional solar cells.
