The Spark skyscraper in Warsaw is one of the most innovative office buildings in CEE region. Not only through the integration of Connected by Skanska smart operating system, but also through unique “printed” solar panels on its facade.
A Polish company called Saule Technologies is revolutionizing the solar panels industry with its use of unique perovskite cells. The compound known as Perovskite (a calcium titanium oxide mineral composed of calcium titanate) is believed to replace silicon to create energy self-sufficient buildings.
In Warsaw, together with Skanska, they covered the Spark with 52 ultra-thin photovoltaic modules in 2018. “The final version of this panel will cover the demand for energy needed for lighting for one employee’s workspace for eight hours. Alternatively, it is equivalent to the energy used by one computer that is on for an entire working day,” claims Saule Technologies on its blog.
