Autonomous curtain wall panel

Project ID: TH03020341
Funding provider: Technology Agency of the Czech Republic
Investigator at UCEEB:  doc. Ing. Tomáš Matuška, Ph.D.
Project duration: 1. 1. 2018 – 31. 12. 20120
Partners: Skanska, a.s.

The goal of the project (until 2020) is to develop the prototype of unitized curtain wall panel with integrated Peltier module for cooling/heating, ventilation unit, interior lighting, movable Venetian blind and photovoltaic DC micro-system with flat battery for driving of these elements. Intelligent controller of energy flows to create indoor environment in adjacent space is also a part of the facade panel. The autonomous curtain wall panel thanks to prefabricated integration of given elements will: increase the speed of building construction, save floor area, increase independence of indoor environment on central control of technical equipment of building (i.e. lighting, ventilation, heating, cooling, electricity), so it can increase users indoor comfort in administrative buildings.
