Ground-breaking smart solar windows helping to reduce our ecological footprint
The building-integrated photovoltaics sector has not yet been able to develop and launch a transparent photovoltaic (PV) window solution onto the market that is capable of meeting the demands of full transparency, active lifetime and energy production, among other things. The EU-funded Tech4Win project aims to develop a novel transparent PV window concept based on a tandem inspired structure that combines an inorganic ultraviolet selective multi-functional coating with an organic infrared selective PV device. It will be able to generate renewable energy on site at a reduced cost, guaranteeing a high-transparency degree while avoiding the use of critical raw materials.
