Abstract: front page image
(EN)The present invention relates generally to photovoltaic devices, and more particularly to photovoltaic roofing products in which photovoltaic elements are affixed to roofing substrates. In one embodiment of the invention, a photovoltaic roofing panel comprising a roofing panel substrate having a top surface; and at least six discrete photovoltaic elements affixed to the roofing panel substrate with their photovoltaically-active areas exposed at the top surface of the roofing panel. Another embodiment of the invention is a photovoltaic roofing assembly comprising: a plurality of discrete photovoltaic roofing elements, each comprising one or more photovoltaic elements affixed to a roofing substrate; and a joining member, wherein the plurality of photovoltaic roofing elements are disposed on and affixed to the joining member and are electrically interconnected.
(FR)L'invention concerne en général des dispositifs photovoltaïques et plus particulièrement, des produits photovoltaïques de toiture dans lesquels des éléments photovoltaïques sont fixés sur des substrats de toiture. Dans un mode de réalisation de l'invention, un panneau photovoltaïque de toiture comprend un substrat présentant une surface supérieure; et au moins six éléments photovoltaïques fixés sur le substrat de panneau de toiture, les zones photovoltaïques actives étant exposées sur la surface supérieure du panneau de toiture. Dans un autre mode de réalisation de l'invention un ensemble photovoltaïque de toiture comprend : une pluralité d'éléments photovoltaïques discrets de toiture fixés à un substrat de toiture; et un élément de liaison, la pluralité d'éléments photovoltaïques de toiture étant disposés sur l'élément de liaison et fixés à ce dernier, et étant électriquement interconnectés.
