SOLAR ACTIVATION OF FOOTBRIDGES FOR BEIJING
Architecture | Urban Design
Dr. Peter Kuczia
Peter Kuczia | AVANCIS
There are hundreds of unsightly footbridges in Beijing. The idea of cladding them with power generating thin-film solar panels is not only sustainable, but also creates sculptural diversity in the town. Each single footbridge gets its own individual design, becoming a cityscape eye catcher and even a unique reference point for visitors.
The lightweight, aesthetic thin-film AVANCIS photovoltaic modules are able to produce electricity under the most unfavorable weather and site conditions, so they are ideal material for cladding the existing structures.
E-car and e-bike charging stations under the footbridges will directly utilize the generated solar energy on site.
Display measures communicate the advantages of solar energy and educate the passerby about sustainability.
