Highly advanced modular integration of insulation, energizing and storage systems for non-residential buildings
The project aims to develop a truly innovative façade solution based on the smart integration of highly energy eﬃcient components, including super-insulative elements, solar energy harvesting and active energy storage features, all in one single combined active/passive management system especially addressed for modern non-residential lightweight Curtain Wall and Double Skin Frame (DSF) retroﬁtting solutions.
POWERSKIN PLUS (POWERSKIN+) intends to be at the forefront of the first generation of off-site prefabricated, modular “ready-to-buy” and easy-to-install glazing and opaque elements, with sustainable ecodesigned connecting framings, improved functional coatings, active and passive thermal energy storage (TES) technology solutions and integrated semi-transparent PV cells. The solar electric harvesting features will be matched and completed with a dedicated large capacity building electric storage system, in a true energy management turnkey package.
