Development of a window system for the optimization of the energy gain in solar architecture

Objective



The progressive spread of solar architecture is increasing the demand for suitable windows. The aim of the research-project is the development of an adaptable window-system for various situations (orientation of the facade, climate zone, wind exposure), which makes possible an optimisation of the energy gain through the window as part of a solar facade. Heat insulation, protection against the sun and ventilation control should be specifically alterable by the integration of variable elements (like special roller blinds, daylighting elements, ventilation elements) into the window to meet the seasonally changing requirements. The new window-system contributes to the development of higher standards for windows moreover the cooperation of companies from several countries would lead to a faster market penetration of these standards.
