Growing Solar by Jan Penka

‘Grow­ing Solar’ is designed to inte­grate solar pan­els into urban archi­tec­ture with­out com­pro­mis­ing on aes­thet­ics

Who Urban inhab­i­tants look­ing for sus­tain­able and aes­thet­i­cal­ly pleas­ing solu­tions to their ener­gy needs.

Why The design is inspired by ivy, which grows par­a­sit­i­cal­ly on trees, build­ings, and fences. The solar pan­els are arranged in a pat­tern that mim­ics the growth of climb­ing plants, giv­ing the sys­tem a nat­ur­al and organ­ic look. This helps the solar pan­els blend in with the urban envi­ron­ment, plac­ing them in a set­ting between an aes­thet­ic and a nec­es­sary solu­tion.

How ‘Grow­ing Solar’ uses ASCA’s organ­ic and trans­par­ent pho­to­volta­ic film, along with a link­age sys­tem which makes it pos­si­ble to cre­ate an indi­vid­ual pat­tern adapt­ed to the build­ing.

Where ‘Grow­ing Solar’ can be installed on var­i­ous archi­tec­tur­al ele­ments, such as emp­ty facades and street poles, to max­i­mize space util­i­sa­tion and increase renew­able ener­gy gen­er­a­tion in urban areas.
