Time: 14:00-15:15 CET 
Moderator: Sarah Marchionda

Cities are in the midst of transitioning to clean and green energy systems. The question remains: how can we embed large shares of solar energy across the built environment? And how can we do this in a cost-effective and innovative way? This lecture will be led by researchers from the Solar Urban program at TU Delft who are working on exactly this. The speakers will introduce the Dutch PV Portal, a tool that can be used by policymakers and homeowners to accurately predict the potential for solar production. They will also share results and key insights from solar projects deployed in Amsterdam and the TU Delft campus. Come and learn about the opportunities for utilizing solar energy everywhere in the built environment.

Featuring speakers:

  • Olindo Isabella, Associate Professor TU Delft Photovoltaic Materials and Devices group
  • Hesan Ziar, Assistant Professor, TU Delft Photovoltaic Materials and Devices group
  • Maarten Verkou, Research Fellow, Solar Urban at Photovoltaic Materials and Devices group

Olindo Isabella is an Associate Professor and the head of the Photovoltaic Material and Devices group at Delft University of Technology. His areas of expertise are opto-electrical modelling, thin-film and wafer-based silicon solar cells, smart PV modules, PV-powered multi-functional building elements and comprehensive modelling of XIPV systems. He is the principal investigator of Solar Urban theme of TU Delft Urban Energy Institute and of the Advanced Metropolitan Solutions Institute in Amsterdam.
