BISOL: installed solar modules now in Antarctica

BISOL, the biggest truly European solar manufacturer, has their modules installed on the first-ever zero-emission research station in Antarctica.

Even though BISOL solar modules are present in more than 100 countries around the world, some places still seem unreachable for solar technology; there is no better place on Earth for breaking down this assumption than Antarctica! When this global milestone is reached by an innovative Slovenian company, which in two decades established itself as the largest true European producer of solar modules, the news seems even more incredible.

100% EU-made solar modules

Through its contribution of 100% EU-made solar modules, which follow the highest production quality standards, BISOL supports the Brussels-based International Polar Foundation that designed and built the first-ever “zero emission” polar research station, the Princess Elisabeth Antarctica, with help from its many partners and the Belgian state. This ground-breaking station is powered by wind turbines, solar photovoltaic panels, and solar thermal panels.

The project demonstrates how the climate challenge can be met and how readily accessible technology can help us to achieve a low-carbon society. The revolutionary design and clean energy concept of the research station seamlessly integrate passive building technologies, renewable wind and solar installations, together with power electronics in a micro smart grid that delivers maximum energy efficiency.


We are honored to be a part of a project that shares the values and the mission of our company. At BISOL Group, we believe that companies can play a key role in building a sustainable economy and society, which is why we take our responsibility towards the environment and the community around us very seriously,« BISOL Group comments on the support for the project of global importance. They strive to implement a sustainable approach also in their production process, namely with 73 solar power plants owned by the company, BISOL produces as much as ten times more electricity than they use for the production of solar modules.
