| At present, widespread energy innovations in terms of optimizing both the on-site distributed energy generation and the energy use intensity are urgently required in the built environment and in agricultural production facilities.
| In this article the analysis of the electric performance of the COOLSKIN system with respect to its operation under different environmental conditions is presented.
| Photovoltaic (PV) windows can enable net-zero highly glazed buildings
| BIPV represents an important field to explore, since PV systems have an enormous potential within the context of architectural and urban design.
| This paper focuses on the fire safety aspects related to the use of fire PV panels and systems in building facades.
| This text provides an overview of the PhotoVoltaic lamination process. It examines the differences between various types of laminators, and outlines the process flow for each. It also provides an example of a typical cycle time for EVA/POE lamination.
| Investigations of Electrical and Optical Performances for Window Applications in Tropical Region
| In this work, thermal and electrical performances of a multicrystalline silicon based PV-vacuum glazing were characterised using indoor test cell.
| Abatement of the high building energy is possible by employing semitransparent photovoltaic window which has triple point advantages as they control the admitted solar gain and daylight and generates benign electricity.

| I want you to think about your daily journey to work. Take a minute, visualize it – and then answer me this: How many glass surfaces did you see? Too many to remember?
| A clean, safe and sustainable source of energy, solar continues to power the world at a faster pace than ever before.
| Solar glass is used as glazing for solar devices like photovoltaic modules and solarthermal collectors. In many dry regions dust accumulation lead to extreme efficiency losses due to soiling, up to -80% in 6 month.
| Along with the multifunctionality of the building skin, BIPV today involves a new aesthetics in contemporary architecture.
| Modern, transparent and prestigious – large glass façades are very much in vogue for office complexes and industrial buildings.
| 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.
| Cities are eating up an increasing amount of heat and electricity. In order to reduce this consumption, buildings have to become increasingly efficient and integrate more renewable energies.
| Although the costs for solar power have come down considerably lately, photovoltaics are still unable to compete with conventional energy sources.
| The efficiency of photovoltaic modules is far from being exhausted. Companies are fighting on many fronts to gain percentage points.
| 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.
| PVB is increasingly assuming the leading role among alternative encapsulation materials for solar cells as the alternatives to Ethylene-Vinyl-Acetate (EVA)
