Energy active curtain walling facade

Project ID: TA04021195
Funding provider: Technology Agency of the Czech Republic
Investigator at UCEEB:  doc. Ing. Tomáš Matuška, Ph.D.
Project duration: 1. 1. 2015 – 31. 12. 2017
Partners: Skanska, a.s.

The objective of the project is to develop, test, certify and prepare for serial production two innovative components for the energy active curtain walling facade. facade module with hybrid photovoltaic-thermal collector will be designed for combined production of energy (electricity, heat, cold). Facade module with selective optical reflection raster will be used for purposes of diffuse lighting, passive solar gain in the winter and reflection of solar radiation in the summer for reduction of cooling loads in building interior (generally reduction of space heating and cooling demand, reduction of lighting demand). Energy components will be part of a standardized prefabricated structural system manufactured by the industrial partner.
