CAN YOU MAKE CIRCULAR SOLAR A REALITY?

We are looking for people to join our team of changemakers, see our open positions below!

Since we are developing the most sustainable solar panel in the world, we need your help. Our solar panel is repairable, upgradable, and fully recyclable. Not only that, the supply chain of solar panels today violates human rights, so we are making sure that we source our products from fair suppliers. We strive to bring true sustainability to the energy market, and to the solar industry. So, we need someone who can prepare the company and the industry for our disruptive product. Is that you?

 

Logistical Information for all positions:

Approx. 4 months (min 8h/week)
On-site attendance in Delft required

Mechanical Engineer

MECHANICAL ENGINEER

Can you envision and realise a fair, circular solar panel design?

There are strong technical advantages to the conventional design for solar panels, including the lamination in place. But there are also limiting aspects to these design choices, including rapid degradation, and incapabilities to recycle and repair. So our design has involved removing the EVA lamination. This leads to other challenging limitations in terms of mechanical rigidity, encapsulation and heat transfer. Challenges that need to be further researched and overcome!

  Some requirements:

  • Knowledge about analysing and modelling forces acting on solar modules
  • Basic understanding of adhesives
  • Interest in sustainability
  • Being up for a challenge
  • Team working skills

 

 

  Your role:

  • Modelling mechanical strain on the Biosphere Solar panel
  • Coming up with design improvements to increase mechanical stability of the Biosphere Solar panel design

  • Hands on experience in a super dynamic start-up
  • Expanding your network in the solar industry
  • The opportunity to shape the circular economy
