PV OpMaat CustomFit: Responsible Integration of PV Elements in Buildings
SGS INTRON is taking part in the Interreg project PV OpMaat CustomFit. Participating partners will examine how solar panels can be integrated more efficiently and in a more customized way in homes and buildings.
The aim of the project is to demonstrate the tailor-made manufacturability of thin film PV and to integrate this into construction elements such as roofs, windows, conservatories and façade panels. This development is a prelude to the increasingly large-scale application of aesthetically responsible PV for power generation in the built environment.
Participants project 'PV OpMaat CustomFit '
The project includes eight knowledge partners and about fifteen companies. In addition to the Solliance partners TNO (project coordinator) ECH, IMEC (B), FZ Jülich (D), TU/e and Hasselt University (B) the following organizations are also taking part Zuyd University, KU Leuven (B) and SGS INTRON. In addition, there is collaboration with suppliers, PV producers and integration companies, construction companies and end-users, knowledge and educational institutions and the private sector.
