Every year, one industrial sector eagerly awaits the International Technology Roadmap for Photovoltaic (ITRPV). VDMA members explain how mechanical engineering in Germany reacts to the trends mentioned in the ITRPV using practical examples.
As part of the restoration of the historic solarium at the Hathersage lido, Polysolar in collaboration with canopy providers 123v have installed revolutionary transparent solar-PV glazing into a smart, energy generating roof structure.
Over half the world’s seven billion inhabitants live in cities, by the year 2050 the number will grow to almost ten billion. In order to avoid a climatic collapse in the metropolises, there is no other alternative to energy-efficient buildings.
Photovoltaic modules are components used for the production of electricity from solar energy and, thanks to their morphological and constructive configuration, are suitable for integration in the external skins of buildings.
