While there are many factors influencing the efficiency of photovoltaic (PV) cells one of the most important ones is temperature. Module temperatures can get significantly higher than the ambient temperature, increases of up to 30°C have been reported in literature. An increase in temperature has an adverse effect on the module’s efficiency,...

The built environment contributes with 39% of the CO2 emissions in the world [3]. At the same time it is a sector that is expected to grow from US$10.9 trillion (2017) to US$12.9 trillion (2022) [4]. A sector with such an economic growth but with a negative environmental impact needs to innovate in order to reduce its carbon footprint. These are...
