The first introduction of an energy harvesting sign was realized as a pilot project in collaboration with Van Happen Containers and Metropool Regio Eindhoven.

In September 2020, Lusoco revealed it’s first pilot, showing the new concept of large scale printed Luminescent Solar Concentrator technology as self-sustaining signage. This allowed us to demonstrate our cutting edge highly fluorescent inks that facilitate energy/sunlight collection and concentration to our side attached solar cells.

The installed sign during the day and night.

With an estimate of 173,000 illuminated signs in the Netherlands alone, the energy saving potential for this application is as much as 70.000 households. Next to this, the ease of installation and possibility to relocate is an important value proposition to choose for sustainable signage.

We are interested in collaborating with you to further validate our technology and potential impact in our accessible markets. Dare to challenge us with new projects to become a member of our community of energy harvesting glass.
