How do we break through the barriers on the way to a circular construction sector?
Marloes van Heteren spoke on Monday 1 February on behalf of Studio Solarix at the digital event of the National Circular Economy Conference of the Ministry of Infrastructure and Water Management, alongside speakers such as Mark Rutte and Ingrid Van Engelshoven.
As one of the successful scale-ups from the Circular @ Scale program, we shared our successes and challenges to make the circular economy the new normal. Watch and listen to Marloes’s story about how awareness about climate change and challenges with energy generation via roofs led to the creation of Studio Solarix.
Marloes explains how, together with business partner Reinier Bosch, she discovered a gap in the market, or “lack of the wall”, when they saw that all facades could be potential energy sources, there was nothing before that. Nobody wants solar panels that are dull black and present in one size and are not attractive to project developers and architects. To accelerate the energy transition, they strived together to develop solar panels that look beautiful, with optimal color perception and optimal energy yields. To accelerate the energy transition, they strived together to develop solar panels that look beautiful, with optimal color perception and optimal energy yields. Circularity is also central to the entire process.
For example, Studio Solarix successfully developed Solar Design facades that make an impact in the field of sustainability and circularity. The prototype has already won a Dutch Design Award and nowadays the Solar Design facades by Studio Solarix can be found at the innovative Pharos project of Cairns Real Estate, and more.
