TULiPPS Solar: Automotive Solutions for Photovoltaic Market

Paul Stassen, a long-time plastics-industry executive with 23 years’ experience in technical and commercial roles, has formed a new company, TULiPPS Solar B.V., that is applying automotive composites design and materials development technology to address long-standing problems in the solar photovoltaic (PV) market.

TULiPPS Solar, based in Eindhoven, Netherlands, will develop and commercialize a unique, lightweight solar photovoltaic (PV) module technology that harnesses the benefits of injection molded automotive-grade composites to solve numerous issues with conventional roof-mounted PV modules utilizing aluminum frames. The company is currently developing prototypes for testing by early customers, and has a goal of being commercial by 2012 with products initially focused on light, flat roofs common to large industrial buildings. Preliminary work on the company’s integrated Cosmos PV module design shows the patent-pending system will reduce weight and costs, speed installation, increase energy output per unit area, lower maintenance, and improve functionality vs. conventional systems. Developed in partnership with leading companies in the automotive composites, roofing, and PV industries, and with financial support from the Province of Noord-Brabant in the Netherlands, the new Cosmos module system has been carefully designed to address deficiencies with conventional PV systems, take full advantage of automotive “lightweighting” strategies, and to bring greater value to all members of the solar PV supply chain.
