Title (EN) PHOTOVOLTAIC ROOF TILE
(FR) TUILE PHOTOVOLTAIQUE
Abstract: front page image
(EN)A photovoltaic roof tile for creating a roof covering over a roof substructure. In one embodiment, the roof tile includes a plate assembly and a photovoltaic cell. The plate assembly has a base portion for contacting the substructure and a face portion for protecting the photovoltaic cell. A compartment between the base portion and the face portion retains the photovoltaic cell, and the compartment is sealed to protect the photovoltaic cell from an external environment. The tile is configured to be coupled directly to the substructure and to overlap at least one adjacent tile for directing water down a slope of the substructure. The base portion and the face portion can be separate components that are sealed together to encapsulate the photovoltaic cell.
(FR)Tuile photovoltaïque permettant de composer une toiture recouvrant une sous-structure de toit. Dans un mode de réalisation, la tuile comprend une ensemble plaque et une cellule photovoltaïque. L'ensemble plaque possède une partie base qui repose sur la sous-structure et une partie supérieure qui protège la cellule photovoltaïque. Un compartiment situé entre la base et la partie supérieure contient la cellule photovoltaïque, ce compartiment étant scellé afin de protéger ladite cellule de l'environnement extérieur. La tuile est conçue pour être directement couplée à la sous-structure et pour recouvrir au moins une tuile adjacente, ce qui permet d'évacuer l'eau par la pente de la sous-structure. La partie base et la partie supérieure peuvent être deux éléments séparés, scellés l'un à l'autre afin d'envelopper la cellule photovoltaïque.
