Topic: 6. 1 PV on/in Buildings
Summary / Abstract: Through the H2020 BE-SMART project, we work on the validation and industrialization of new materials and processes for manufacturing next-generation BIPV. The project’sdevelopmentsso far indicatethe high potential of e.g. using colored encapsulants,interferential filter technique and/orceramic-basedcolored glazingfor implementingnovel"transformative" BIPVwith high aesthetic quality.Yet, since BIPV’s primary function is electricity production,we need tounderstand and quantify the impact of such coloration solutions on the performance and reliability of future BIPV.Inthis paper, we present an experimentalcomparativestudy on the: i) opticalperformance, ii) electrical performanceand iii) reliabilityof multiple color coated and patterned BIPVglazing solutions, towardstheirupscaling andcommercialization.Indicative results are presented and discussed in the followingexplanatory pages. Detailed presentation of the methodologies and all experimental studieswill be given in the full paper version.
