INFINITE study on coloured PV to be presented at EU PVSEC

Do coloured PV modules perform as well as traditional ones?

Building Integrated Photovoltaic (BIPV) systems provide architects and designers with flexible, visually pleasing solutions to make their buildings less energy demanding. However, how does colour affect the energy performance of PV modules?

To answer this question, researchers from Eurac Research carried out a series of tests in both indoor and outdoor testing facilities, including a rotating platform that replicates the inclination and solar exposure of a roof to simulate real-life conditions. This will allow the project partners to further improve INFINITE BIPV kit and ensure high standards for the production of solar energy.

The results of the test campaign will be presented on Thursday, 9 September 2021 at the international Conference for Photovoltaic research, technologies, and applications EU PVSEC.

Designed to make the difference

Understanding the demand-side requirements is the first step towards designing functional technology solutions. Over the past year, INFINITE partners carried out extensive research to fine-tune the project’s envelope kits for renovation

The essential role of BIPV towards energy transition

Photovoltaics on the built environment can support the achievements of the EU targets by turning buildings into decentralised energy producers
