3 yrProject Duration
Buildings account for 40% of the total primary energy requirement in Europe, applying photovoltaic (PV) panels to buildings is an important application for wider PV deployment and achieving our EU Renewable Energy target. AMSET describes a disruptive solar technology where record efficiency increases are achieved and costs reduced. Both direct and diffuse solar radiation will be concentrated in a static building component delivering breakthroughs in solar device efficiencies and unique building integrated components, with the ability not only to generate power and heat but with options for building demand side management.
