Would you buy a car without tires ? Of course not...! When we look at the buildings that surrounds us, nearly the same is happening, but much more efficient sunshading is missing.

A sunshade is the first barrier against the sun and is able to prevent overheating, and therefore the best solution to save cooling energy on the first hand. While we dont want the sun in summer, we would like to gain as much energy as possible in the wintertime, so an adatvie sunshade is not only able to block, but also to control the energy consumptions during all seasons. So without doubt, a sunscreen is able to provide indoor comfort as well as it helps to shade against the sun. 

We are asked from the dutch sun screen association ROMAZO to cooperate for the next semesters with the buckylab. We will gain first hand informations, knowledge and support from the different companies within ROMAZO. So a perfect fit for the course to have the experts on the table for our prototypes.

As a start up for the next semesters we will organize a mini symposium for all the students and interested guests on Friday the 7th of September in Nieuwegein with a wide range of different experts as speakers.
So book this date, more infos within the next days.
