CLPe to install 2,000 bifacial solar panels on CityUHK buildings

The panels generate about 10% more electricity than traditional ones.

City University of Hong Kong (CityUHK) has tapped CLPe to install advanced high-efficiency bifacial solar panels across the campus. 

The one-stop Solar-as-a-Service solution by CLPe promotes cost-effective renewable energy adoption at the university.

CLPe will install around 2,000 high-efficiency bifacial solar panels on the rooftops of over 30 CityUHK buildings. 

The panels, absorbing sunlight on both sides, will generate about 10% more electricity than traditional single-sided panels.

The system will generate about 1.15GWh of electricity annually, equal to the consumption of around 280 households, and will reduce carbon emissions by an estimated 450 tonnes per year. 

In addition, CLPe will introduce a real-time monitoring platform to enhance the system's performance and operational efficiency.

CityUHK will also test i2Cool's electricity-free, passive radiative cooling paint as part of the project. 

Developed under the HK Tech 300 Programme, the coating reflects sunlight to reduce building temperatures and will be tested on a CityUHK rooftop to evaluate its effectiveness in enhancing solar power generation.

The solar project will commence in Q3 and is set for completion by Q1 2025.
