Thibaud Le Séguillon, Heliatek CEO said, “We are very proud to work with Engie on such an iconic campaign. Our HeliaSol, organic solar films, are a perfect fit for this urban installation. Together we bring decentralized, decarbonized power generation to the city centers.”
“This project is a great premiere,” added Etienne Lerch, ENGIE Laborelec, Center of Research and Development Engie. “The approach is unique and bold, because it brings a whole new technology together with the work of a street artist. A real solar art work, consisting of the organic solar films of Heliatek and enchanting art. Lightweight, flexible and easy to install, the solar films literally blend in with this art landscape to provide their residents with a lasting, powerful and therefore useful solution. And it's very exciting to immediately see the benefits for the neighborhood's residents. "
