Marshalls & Polysolar develop the UK’s first transparent solar bus shelter
Marshalls, with technology company Polysolar, have installed the UK’s first transparent solar bus shelter in London’s Canary Wharf.
UK technology company Polysolar has installed a revolutionary transparent solar-PV (photovoltaic) glazing in a smart, energy generating bus shelter structure designed by the UK’s leading supplier of hard landscaping and street furniture products, Marshalls.
Commissioned by Canary Wharf Group, designed and developed by Polysolar Ltd, in collaboration with Marshalls, the bus shelter is made of innovate transparent photovoltaic glass that generates clean renewable electricity even in low and ambient light to help meet the Capital’s pressing infrastructure needs.
The concept of discretely embedding solar technology into the fabric of structures and buildings represents a convenient and attractive means of reducing London’s carbon footprint. The Solar Bus Shelter is capable of generating more than 2000 kWhours per year, enough electricity to power the average London home - so adoption of this exciting technology can make a significant contribution to London’s sustainable future.
This installation will also constitute an upgrade in capacity and aesthetics over the previous bus shelter, retaining the weather-proofing and structural elements of standard architectural glazing.
Since 1986, Marshalls has worked with the Canary Wharf Group (CWG) to develop a wide range of bespoke paving, lighting and street furniture products designed specifically for the site.
Polysolar were previously selected as winners in CWG’s Smart Cities accelerator, the Cognicity Challenge (16th April 2015). Then, Polysolar had competed in a twelve-week accelerator programme at Canary Wharf under the ‘Sustainable Buildings’ and stream of the competition. Polysolar received a £50,000 prize and the opportunity to pilot their ground-breaking technology in one of London’s most forward-thinking districts, Canary Wharf, as part of Canary Wharf Group’s ongoing commitment to adopting the next generation of technology solutions.
Hamish Watson, Founder and CEO of Polysolar explained: “The solar bus shelter provides not just demonstration of the functionality, performance and aesthetics of our PV glass but represents an important application innovation. Using our solar PV glazing across London’s transport sector, in things like bus shelters, EV charging canopies, walkways and bike parks, could have a significant impact on the city's emissions, without compromising its environment, architecture or budgets."
Steve Reddington, Commercial Director for Street Furniture at Marshalls, said: “We’re really pleased that Polysolar approached us to get with involved with this ground breaking project, the possibilities with this technology are really exciting.
“We worked closely with Polysolar to develop a design for the shelter which not only ensures integration into the modern landscape of Canary Wharf, but also means that the solar technology causes no visual impact, we’re thrilled with the outcome.”
