Title
(DE) FOTOVOLTAISCHES BAUELEMENT
(EN) PHOTOVOLTAIC BUILDING ELEMENT
(FR) ÉLÉMENT DE CONSTRUCTION PHOTOVOLTAÏQUE
Abstract
(EN)
A method of producing a photovoltaic element (1) comprises forming a photovoltaic member (11) on a first area (Al) of a support member (12), such that the photovoltaic member leaves a second area (A2) of the support member free, and bending the support member (12) in the second area (A2) so as to enhanced the rigidity of the photovoltaic element (1). The support member (12) is substantially planar and is capable of being permanently deformed by bending, while bending the support member (12) may be carried out immediately after forming the photovoltaic member (11).

(FR)
Un procédé de production d'un élément photovoltaïque (1) consiste à former un élément photovoltaïque (11) sur une première zone (Al) d'un élément de support (12), de telle sorte que l'élément photovoltaïque quitte une seconde zone (A2) de l'élément de support libre, et à plier l'élément de support (12) dans la seconde zone (A2) de façon à améliorer la rigidité de l'élément photovoltaïque (1). L'élément de support (12) est sensiblement plan et peut être déformé de façon permanente par pliage, tandis que le pliage de l'élément de support (12) peut être effectué immédiatement après la formation de l'élément photovoltaïque (11).
