Powerskin+

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 curtain walls facades in non-residential buildings.

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 BiPV 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.

Project started: October 1, 2019
Duration: 48 months
