Solar Visuals Finalises its First Mimic Design Solar Façade

News update – June 11th, 2020
Last week the installation of Solar Visuals onto the headquarters of Dutch building company BAM in Bunnik has been finalised. This marks a marking a major step forward to optimising energy production in the built environment, where buildings and façades can be turned into energy producing entities.

Solar Visuals, initially a startup founded by UNSense, TNO and TS visuals in 2018, is a company that develops, designs and prints customised façade panels.

Through the incorporation of mimic design, the energy generating façade panels are tailor-designed in such a way that they can be integrated seamlessly into the façade surfaces of buildings, optimising both its form and function.

For the BAM façade, a brick motif has been chosen in seeking to adapt to the existing brick façade. The Brick pattern is part of the standardised Solar Visuals collection. Compared to the most of the current non-printed solar panels, our energy-generating façade modules holds an energy efficiency of up to 85%, with a capacity of 220 watts peak (Wp) per panel.

By providing an attractive alternative to traditional façade surfaces, in addition to maximising available surfaces for energy production, Solar Visuals’s façade modules aim to facilitate the transition to more energy-efficient buildings while providing endless possibilities for aesthetic variation.
