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.
Windows have always been at the intersection of various technologies and architectural processes that evolved in parallel and often intertwined.
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.
The crisis of the photovoltaic industry is drawing to a close. While it is true demand for solar modules is dropping in Europe, demand in many other regions is rising rapidly.
Although the costs for solar power have come down considerably lately, photovoltaics are still unable to compete with conventional energy sources.
Resilient, ultraslippery glass could lead to self-cleaning, scratch-resistant windows, lenses, and solar panels
The following approach describes a new encapsulation technology for glass-glass-modules using tempered thin glass as front and back sheets.
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.
