The house has introduced significant technological innovations such as the world’s most efficient flexible solar panels, made with both Spanish and American technology, what is being creating a great interest on companies and people who visited the house and it represents a significant breakthrough in the architectural integration of solar systems. “We wanted to overcome the idea that a solar house is a traditional house with solar panels on top and a lot of technology inside. Our project is a full solar house, a new generation of building that visitors have come to appreciate”, says Daniel Ibañez, co-director of the project.
The Fab Lab House wins Solar Decathlon Europe people’s choice award in 2011. More than 20,000 people have visited the most popular solar house in Madrid.
