Current Status

Transparent / photovoltaic components
To provide a zero-emission building is a very complex issue and requires application of active systems to obtain energy from the sun. The selection of appropriate building integrated photovoltaic systems depends on many factors, like the efficiency of the PV panel, cost and area needed per kW or availability on the market. The GPEE project research is performed for office buildings. Therefore, additional aspects such as attractive appearance of the façade and possibility of conversion of the diffuse radiation should be considered.

A preliminary project of the photovoltaic position on façades assumes vertical arrangement of two columns containing six horizontal PV panels. The selected PV module is situated in rails and can be positioned horizontally or vertically.
