The Energy Roof is a design project for the University of Perugia, featuring a canopy in the center of the Italian city covered in transparent photovoltaic cells. Paired with a system of wind turbines underneath the solar panels, the Energy Roof will generate enough energy to power the museum-like passage underneath covering the history of Perugia.
