Building integration is the way towards large-scale application of PV within Europe. As aesthetics are key to extensive implementation of PV in buildings, special building elements will be required featuring complex geometrical shapes, improved visual appeal, and transparency. This project aims at the realisation of a diversity of electricity generating construction elements of different shapes at competitive cost in order to address the building market.
Successful implementation of the project should allow opening market segments until know reluctant to introduction of PV mainly because of non-technical reasons. There will be an advanced generic cell and interconnection technology developed to realise cost effective production of a variety of custom designed PV elements at competitive and comparable cost. Efforts will be made towards increased awareness of the FV integration opportunities towards the European building society.
