S’Tile has developed BIPV (Building Integrated Photovoltaic) solutions for all types of new buildings.
S’Tile has developed BIPV (Building Integrated Photovoltaic) solutions for all types of new buildings. The Linea module combines aesthetics and flexibility with very high power performance, enabling modules to easily fit with designer’s requests for installing modules on facade and roofs. The company is showcasing its products at Intersolar Europe 2019.
The EU’s Energy Performance of Buildings Directive is a key piece of legislation towards all new buildings being almost zero net energy users as a typical building is deemed to account for around 36% of the EU’s CO2 emissions. However, BIPV projects requires specific features which are challenging to bring together in one unique product: Power demand per m2, customization of module in terms of dimensions, transparency %, voltage, all characteristics complying with an aesthetic integration.
S’Tile provides custom designs of solar photovoltaic panels. Dedicated solutions are proposed for each project. Solutions combine high efficiencies (> 200 W/m²) with singular visual aspect; a full paving of module area by cells without any ribbon visible at the surface allows for multiple unique solutions to market requirements.
Glass/glass modules for building facades, small and large area solar rooftops and urban furniture.
Two main families of products are proposed with flexible characteristics. Firstly, a ‘Full Black] module that is particularly adapted for tiles, slates and applications requesting discreet integration. Secondly, ‘Biomimetic’ panels aimed for building’s facades, parking shelters, railings or pergolas. Each range is proposed in Glass/backsheet of Glass/Glass versions. Modules are IEC/EN 61730 and IEC/EN 61215 compliant.
The Linea modules are currently available.
Understanding bifacial’s true potential: technology innovation and technical bankability of bifacial
The deployment of bifacial PV technology is growing rapidly. It has proven to be the most effective solution to reduce levelised energy costs (LCOE) and increase the Investment Rate of Return (IRR) of PV systems, offering substantially improved energy yield compared to the use of standard mono-facial modules. Even though the concept is not new, it has been a niche technology for many years with uncertainties in predicting performance and optimizing installations. Today, bifacial technology is becoming mainstream, with capacity available at the multi-gigawatt scale and with corresponding global deployment of project pipelines. Join this webinar, presented by Andrea Viaro, as he discusses the award-winning Swan bifacial module with transparent backsheet from DuPont, its features, benefits and differences vs. standard glass-glass modules. Jinko Solar’s new bifacial technology innovations will also be highlighted, specifically covering profitability in deployment at utility-scale PV power plants. Andrea will be joined by Dr.Lars Podlowski who will give a comprehensive introduction to all aspects of bifacial PV technology, with a special focus on benefits and risks industry buyers and investors should pay attention to.
