Energy With Beauty – Photovoltaics in the Building Façade: Basics, Current Trends and Exemplary Implementations

Free Webinar

Tuesday, July 23, 2024 | 11.00am–12:30pm CEST | Webinar language: German

Despite impressive growth rates in photovoltaics, we are still at the beginning of the transformation of our energy system towards CO2 neutrality. We will need a lot more space to accommodate PV modules. Façade surfaces, both in existing and new buildings, offer potential that is far from exhausted. The big advantage is that no additional surfaces are sealed, but existing surfaces are used multiple times - in addition to weather protection, also for energy generation. Façade surfaces bring PV into cities, but must therefore be planned with particular care and in a visually appealing way, as the technology becomes visible. The webinar introduces the basics, provides instructions for implementation, looks at current trends and shows realized façade PV projects.
