The system is placed like a skin on the outside of the building, by means of some tracks it moves to protect from the sun while allowing daylight to enter.
This large mobile sunshade can cool the building by 30%. It also incorporates photovoltaic cells that generate enough energy so that the structure can move and provide power to the building.
The system is based on a series of individual modular panels that can be replaced one by one so that if one part is damaged, the entire structure does not have to be changed. The project developers estimate that mounting this system in a 40,000 square meter building would avoid 600 tonnes of CO2 emissions and generate 1,000 MWh of electricity per year.
