Hanergy Holding Group, a pioneering multinational clean energy company, today announced the commissioning of its bus roof PV solution project in Norway.
A 14.4 KW project that took almost a year for completion was being undertaken by Hanergy’s Netherland entity in partnership with Green Energy Scandinavia, a local PV solution provider that’s known for actively developing green energy solutions.
Earlier, in June 2017 Green Energy Scandinavia together with Hanergy had winded-up 160KW glass curtain wall system that used Hanergy’s German subsidiary Solibro’s solar model. The project was remarkably successful and became extremely popular locally.
However, this time, under the partnership, the duo delivered the first 10 PV buses to Norway’s largest bus company Nettbuss after successfully applying Hanergy’s US subsidiary Miasole’s flexible components’ mobile solar energy solution. The thin-film solar panel that is installed on the bus’s roof not only lessens carbon dioxide emissions but also reduces fuel consumption by at least 5% and extends the battery life.
The first 10 buses which use Miasole’s flexible thin-film model are currently operating in Oslo and Hønefoss. While, Nettbuss is already aiming to further replicate this solution in at least 3300 more buses, the company has already expressed its intention to gradually promote this breakthrough solution from Hanergy to the whole of Northern Europe.
