There is a 95% certainty that human activity is the dominant cause of observed warming since the mid-20thcentury [1]. Burning fossil fuels for energy is the dominant cause of greenhouse gas emissions. 32% of the Dutch energy supply is consumed by the built environment. The façade is the largest area of the building envelope. Consequently, the...

European policy makers have established a set of 20-20-20 targets for the year 2020 in the energy sector, goals based on security of supply, competitive markets and sustainability. The 3 key objectives include a 20% reduction of greenhouse gases (GHG) and CO2 compared to 1990 levels (and up to 80% by 2050), a 20% improvement in energy efficiency...

Building Integrated Photovoltaics (BIPV) has the potential to play a major role in the ongoing transition towards nearly zero energy buildings. However, the BIPV market is still a niche market, representing only 1% of the global PV share. One of the main barriers that hinder the deployment of BIPV is the lack of aesthetic flexibility. Architects...

In the process of replacing carbon based fuel with renewable energy, into the energy generation cycle of the world, mobility is considered to be one of the important sectors in which enormous progress can be implemented. Business tycoons are introducing electric vehicles which fascinates people. However, there is yet a stabilized solution to be...

PowerWindow, a built-in Luminescent Solar Concentrator (LSC), is composed of a window glass with thulium doped coating and a CIGS PV-cell strip attached to one glass edge. LSCs can absorb part of the incoming sunlight and re-direct it to the edges, where PV-cells can produce electricity. Light transport efficiency is then determined by several...

The building sector contributes to 36% of the total CO emissions in Europe. Solar energy is considered one of the most promising solutions to reduce CO2 emissions from building-related energy demands. Building-integrated Photovoltaics (BIPV) have acquired special interest due to their dual purpose of generating clean energy and act as a...

Integration of bifacial photovoltaic module with a noise barrier (PVNB) has emerged as one of the promising innovation in the building integrated PV (BIPV) system application. By having the advantage to absorb both the light incident from the front and the rear side of the cell, bifacial PV module is suitable for a vertical installation...

To date, buildings use 40% of the world’s energy and emit 20% of the world’s CO2. Therefore the EU developed the Energy Performance of Buildings Directive, that requires all new buildings to be nearly zero-energy by the end of 2020. This is only possible when the buildings themselves produce renewable energy. This requires ample use of...

Compliance with energy zero buildings is forcing the buildings to transform into energetic plants, which combined with the need for a circular resource conscious economy, seeks for revised forms of a technical energy efficient façade and innovative business models. Due to this, BIPV technologies implementation in the façade are studied under the...

Two important barriers in adopting rooftop PV are the (perceived) lack of compatibility with current (tiled) roofs and the poor aesthetics of roof-mounted PV panels. This has led to the idea of PV roof tiles, which could take away these barriers. The Delft-based company FlexSol Solutions has the unique capability of curving highly efficient...
