Topic: 6. 1 PV on/in Buildings
Summary / Abstract: We demonstrate the feasibility of photovoltaic (PV) modules integrating natural materials such as stone or wood veneer in order to hide the solar cells. The aim of this integration is not only to impart a natural material appearance but also to create a similar surface texture and haptic for the modules. To achieve this, we realize sample modules with a natural stone outer layer on the sunny side or with a wood veneer between the front glass and the cell.
