PRO-S: The first highly energy efficient and eco-friendly bio based-photovoltaic module that works without sunlight or battery consumption for Smart buildings

Project description

Eco-friendly and battery-free PV module for smart buildings

The search to reduce CO2 emissions and transform to an economy based on renewable energy has increased the interest in solar energy that has the best properties possible. However, solar energy highly depends on weather conditions, its storage is expensive and it provokes certain environmental concerns. The EU-funded PRO-S project proposes an advanced photovoltaic (PV) module that is flexible, semi-transparent and toxic-free and generates electricity. It is the first PV module to produce and store electricity as hydrogen based upon needs, which means it is highly efficient on cloudy days. It is battery-free and recyclable and has low maintenance cost and environmental impact while being an economic source of energy. The project will develop the module for commercialisation in the construction and building market.
