Solar Energy Solutions for Facades
Photovoltaic elements are usually found on rooftops - after all, that's where solar irradiation is highest. However, as researchers have discovered, PV elements on facades can be a useful way to supplement the power supply. If appropriately designed, they can be attractively integrated and deliver 50 percent more energy than existing types of wall-mounted PV elements. Even concrete walls are suitable.
