Development of novel materials, processes and supportive actions


WP4. Prototype integration

10The principle objective of this work package is to develop prototypes of design-driven products and demonstrate the practical use under real-world conditions.

To get a good understanding of the applicability the thin-film solar modules, they will be used in three totally different areas.

Therefore the main aspects of this work package include development of the products:

• Manufacturing of customised thin-film PV modules for integration into real applications,
• Integration of thin-film PV modules in the envisioned products for PIPV and BIPV,
• Integration of thin-film PV modules in a textile support to create a solar fabric,
• Monitoring, testing and evaluation,
• Recommendations for further improvements to achieve market readiness of the SolarDesign products.
