Title
(EN) PHOTOVOLTAIC CELL FOR INTEGRATED BUILDING APPLICATIONS AND METHOD FOR MANUFACTURING THIS CELL
(FR) CELLULE PHOTOVOLTAÏQUE POUR DES APPLICATIONS INTÉGRÉES À DES BÂTIMENTS, ET PROCÉDÉ DE FABRICATION DE CETTE CELLULE
Abstract
(EN) A photovoltaic cell (1), for integrated building applications in particular, comprises at least a support element (2) and an active structure (3) arranged on the support element (2) and capable of converting light energy into electrical energy by photovoltaic effect; the support element (2) is a tile (5) of glass or a moulded polymeric material, which extends between two opposite faces (6, 7) provided with respective series of projections (10) defining light orientation patterns for confining the light incident on a first face (6) inside the tile (5) and onto the active structure (3).
(FR) L'invention concerne une cellule photovoltaïque (1) notamment destinée à des applications intégrées à des bâtiments, comprenant au moins un élément de support (2) et une structure active (3) disposée sur l'élément de support (2) et capable de convertir de l'énergie lumineuse en énergie électrique par effet photovoltaïque; l'élément de support (2) est un panneau (5) de verre ou de matériau polymère moulé qui s'étend entre deux faces opposées (6, 7) munies de séries respectives de protubérances (10) définissant des motifs d'orientation de la lumière afin de confiner la lumière incidente sur une première face (6) à l'intérieur d'un panneau (5) et sur la structure active (3).
