PROOF – Photovoltaic Panels for Roofing Elements of Commercial and Industrial Buildings
Following on from the successful project Rh(e)in-Solar, the story continues with PROOF. This new project aims to develop large area photovoltaic panels with high power conversion efficiency, that are to be integrated into roofing products. This technology will be used in roofing membranes and translucent domes (or skylights) for daytime illumination of indoor spaces. These “solar” membranes and skylights permit the valorisation of roofing surfaces of commercial and industrial buildings by giving them a function of electricity production.
