Title
(EN) CONCENTRATING EVACUATED PHOTOVOLTAIC GLAZING PANEL
(FR) VITRE PHOTOVOLTAÏQUE SOUS VIDE DE CONCENTRATION
Abstract
(EN) An evacuated photovoltaic glazing panel is disclosed which is adapted to provide significant thermal insulation and optical daylight control to a building, while at the same time generating electricity through solar energy, in order to reduce and supplement the power requirements of the building, which in combination significantly reduce the carbon footprint of the building in question.
(FR) La présente invention concerne une vitre photovoltaïque sous vide qui est conçue pour fournir une isolation thermique et une commande optique de lumière du jour importantes à un bâtiment, tout en générant en même temps de l'électricité par énergie solaire, afin de réduire les besoins énergétiques du bâtiment et de fournir un complément aux besoins énergétiques du bâtiment, ce qui, en association, réduit sensiblement l'empreinte carbone du bâtiment en question.
