This green residential tower will have 19 floors and 125 social apartments, 125 trees and 5,200 shrubs and plants
Eindhoven is building a special green residential tower of 70 meters high. The ‘Trudo Vertical Forest’ becomes the world’s first vertical forest in social housing. By 2019 the residential tower must be ready.
The vertical forest will absorb annually about 50,000 kilos of CO2 and will supply 13,750 kilos of oxygen. Read More
Stella completed and won a six-day, 3,000-kilometer race across the Australian outback in 2017. The Stella was Lightyears first solar powered car.
LightYear introduces the sun powered car that charges itself while driving.
Students of the Technical University Eindhoven – collaborating in the startup Lightyear – believe the real end game is to have a solar electric car that’s charged by nothing more than the rays of the sun.
“Energy independent electric vehicles (EIVs) are propelled entirely by electricity produced on-board from ambient energy,” says a conference spokesman.
SolarCar Stella completed and won a six-day, 3,000-kilometer race from Darwin to Adelaide across the Australian outback, with an average speed of 67 km/h and with three people on board. The car also achieved a top speed of 120 km/h with a full load of four people, demonstrating the horsepower of this solar-powered vehicle.
Atlas Technologies – the startup of former students of the Technical University Eindhoven – explores whether the family car powered by solar energy, could be a commercial success.
During their study, the former students designed the solar family cars Stella and Stella Lux.
These solar-powered cars won in 2013 and 2015, the World Solar Challenge, a race for solar cars. Read More
