Façade with yield-optimised oriented small PV modules

Innovative solutions are needed to make our buildings more energy-efficient and environmentally friendly at a time when sustainability is playing an ever more important role. Our developed SOLAR.con façade not only constitutes a milestone in sustainability, it’s also an architectural masterpiece. It combines modern design with efficient photovoltaic technology.

SOLAR.con is a façade system into which small PV modules with optimised orientation are integrated for maximum energy production. The modules are seamlessly integrated into a stylish exposed concrete façade, which has preferably been realised with recycled concrete.

Algorithm-based design: Perfect integration into the façade

How the modules have been oriented and arranged within the façade is optimised using an algorithm-based digital design process that utilises the façade and site parameters as well as the technical and commercial target parameters.

The aim is to create an aesthetically pleasing overall façade system for new construction projects as well as for existing buildings. Design quality and best workmanship is particularly important to us during this part of the process.
