Project PV@Fassade

PV@Fassade researchers are currently designing building-integrated photovoltaics that are both efficient and aesthetically pleasing.

BUILDING-INTEGRATED PHOTOVOLTAICS

Building-integrated photovoltaics (BIPV) are used to replace conventional materials in façades, balconies or roofs.  In this connection several challenges have to be considered. They not only affect design, construction, materials and circuitry but also the long-term reliability and efficiency of the PV components. Nine Austrian partners in research and companies working in the field of façades and the PV industry together, aim to overcome these specific challenges.

SOLAR POWER WITH SOPIHISTICATED ARCHITECTURE

A particular focus lies on creating synergy between photovoltaics and architecture. A comprehensive concept can be achieved by taking input from architects, experts and users into consideration.  The project's specific aim is to deliver solutions for reliable, cost-effective and aesthetically pleasing building-integrated photovoltaics.
