Rooftops in Europe have the potential to produce 680 TWh of solar power annually, out of which two thirds can be produced at a cost lower than the current residential tariffs, finds new study from the European Commission's Joint Research Centre
The weight of a thin-film rooftop solar installation at Netherlands football club AZ Alkmaar has been highlighted in media reports as a possible cause of a stadium roof collapse.
Is this really the cause?
"If humanity could capture just one 6,000th of Earth’s available solar energy, we’d be able to meet 100 percent of our energy needs. And today, we are riding a tremendous wave of advancements in solar panel efficiency"

Henrik Fisker: "Harness the power of the sun to create electric power for your Fisker SUV!! Fisker was the first to use a full length solar roof for a production car in 2011. In 2021 we will make it even more powerful! "
Team Bosphorus team has been preparing to represent Turkey at Solar Decathlon Africa competitions in Ben Guerir, Morocco in September 2019.
Our member Schmid Pekintaş is the sponsor of the solar panels on the roof to be used in this project.
Ten years ago, solar power was far more expensive than conventional fossil fuels and the prospect of it becoming a mainstream part of the global energy mix was distant.
When will Europe have its time in the sun?
