Odersun and Lithodecor have come together for the production of solar façades in the form of an Airtec PV system. Odersun will supply its CIS solar modules for Lithodecor’s Airtec system making Airtec façades available with photovoltaic solutions. This new façade will join Lithodecor’s existing glass and natural stone veneer solutions. Further, since Odersun produces system-compatible and project-specific solar modules for BIPV projects, Lithodecor anticipates being able to offer both standard system sizes as well as individual made-to-order solutions.
“Energy efficient buildings [are] not ‘nice-to-have’ anymore, but a mandatory requirement to meet low carbon goals. As an established manufacturer of building systems, we want to provide our customers with materials, which help them to meet these new standards. With Odersun we have found the right partner with the technology and products to enable innovative and aesthetic façades solutions,” stated Dr. Clemens von Trott zu Solz, managing director of Lithodecor’s façade division.
The collaboration between the two companies aims to support designers who want to construct a building that meets energy conservation regulations while benefiting from any energy efficient incentives. The companies debuted samples of the Airtec PV system at the BAU 2011 in Germany and have reference projects currently in the construction phase.
