In work package 4 (coordinated by the University of Hasselt) the construction and the method for electrical interconnection of solar panels is studied.

These panels are also incorporated in customised experimental demonstration models for building elements, including the necessary wiring and electronics. BIPV demonstrators will be manufactured both on the basis of PV materials from own research lines (from work package 3) and based on commercially available PV panels.

Objectives work package
The objectives of work package 4 are:

  • integrated non-transparent thin film PV demonstrators with interconnection and electronics based on the results of work package 3;
  • integrated semi-transparent thin film PV demonstrators with interconnection and electronics based on the results of work package 3;
  • integrated coloured thin film PV demonstrators with interconnection and electronics based on the results of work package 3.
