Organic photovoltaics for eco-friendly buildings
Building applied photovoltaic (BAPV) systems utilise solar panels retrofitted onto building structures such as rooftops or facades to generate electricity. The EU-funded BOOSTER project plans to use flexible organic photovoltaic (OPV) films, which are deemed suitable for BAPV applications. OPV modules feature a low energy payback time and use resources that are abundant, easily accessible and non-toxic. The project will bring OPV technology to TRL 7 by increasing module efficiency and lifetime while also optimising production costs. For successful proof of principle of the idea, researchers will demonstrate a "ready-to-stick" module and a textile-integrated product.
