The third prize went to Monique van den Nieuwenhof, representing a team of Solliance staff working on the development of a solar curtain for greenhouses. Curtains are being used in greenhouses for filtering the excess of light in order to protect the crop. Solliance integrated lightweight, flexible solar cells in an innovative curtain design that allows for a variable light transmittance. Given the large area of greenhouses in the Netherlands and abroad the energy yield can be impressive. Solliance is looking for commercial parties that are interested to bring this product to the market.
The challenge will be a fixed item in the program of the Dutch Design Week in the years to come.
