CIRCUSOL: Solar power business models towards a circular economy in…
This second audio-visual piece explains how the Waasland co-housing demosite functions and the work that the partners did during their visit to Antwerp.
The video explains how the Waasland co-housing demo site works and it illustrates in the habitants words how the process and the adaptation to this new way of living is evolving.
This helps generating success stories that will provide the foundation for the scale-up and diffusion of service based circular business models.

The European Union granted 8 million euros by the Horizon 2020 programme, making this project one of the most ambitious R&D initiatives. Since its beginning in 2018 until its end in 2022, the project partners will develop and demonstrate PSS business models for the solar power sector.
The project has initiated a revolutionary adventure to change the present and achieve a better future. If you want to learn more just click on “play” and enjoy!
