Verticale zonnepanelen ontlasten het elektriciteitsnet en zorgen voor een stabielere energievoorziening

​​Een verticaal opgesteld zonnepaneel zorgt voor gelijkmatigere productie van elektriciteit over het jaar verdeeld. En daardoor belast een verticaal zonnepaneel het energienetwerk minder. Dit blijkt uit een proefopstelling die uitgebreid is getest bij EnTranCe | Centre of Expertise Energy, onderdeel van de Hanzehogeschool Groningen. Doordat een verticaal paneel daarnaast wel zorgt voor de levering van voldoende elektriciteit pleiten onderzoekers van de Hanzehogeschool Groningen voor voordelige subsidievoorwaarden. Lees meer.
