EDP and Heliatek providing sustainable energy for Eco-friendly summer Festivals

22nd of May 2019

Lisbon, Portugal, 16.07.2019 – Heliatek is proud to be part of the environmentally sustainable Summer Festival Project supported by EDP (Energias de Portugal) in Portugal.

With the aim of compensating the total amount of CO2 generated during the festival, EDP has constructed innovative trucks equipped with renewable energy solutions in order to provide energy to the equipment during the festival.

The semi-trailer structure built by EDP is equipped with HeliaSol®: Heliatek’s Organic Photo-Voltaic films on the top front part and will provide green electricity to the equipment.

Have a look at the video of the assembly of the truck parts.

The installation of organic solar films on the structure has been managed by Heliatek’s team and then assembled on site. By this way, no additional structures building and dismantling before and after the festival were necessary, always keeping in mind the economics and the environmental impact.

The semi-trailers will be travelling around all summer to different Festival in Portugal.

Guido van Tartwijk, CEO Heliatek:

„We applaud EDP’s initiative to combine the use of environmentally sustainable clean-tech solutions like our HeliaSol® with an inspirational and uplifting Summer Festival. At Heliatek we believe that sustainability and CO2 reduction does not equate to having no fun anymore. The use of our HeliaSol® product is great example of the shared vision of EDP and Heliatek.”

This modest pilot application between EDP and Heliatek is marking the first step for a future collaboration on Roof application extension and others bigger projects.
