Thanks to cooperation between GUNAM and MAN, first sun bus has been introduced… Solar bus can keep the interior temperature even if diesel engine is not working by solar electricity
GUNAM researchers and MAN Turkey engineers installed 1,5 kWp photovoltaic modules onto the bus roof. Electricity produced from solar panels are used to operate an additional electrical air conditioner which will keep interior atmosphere temperature constant while diesel engine is off.
All solar cells are produced in GUNAM. Glass free flexible lamination has chosen to reduce total mass of the modules. System is able to keep comport level in bus for an hour.
