During the last two years, as part of the EU-funded PVme project, an international consortium of 10 companies and research centres worked together to find solutions for a sustainable building façade. PVme stands for "organic PhotoVoltaic systems integrated in Manufactured building Elements". Almost at the end of the project, the inauguration of the organic-based BIPV (Building Integrated Photovoltaics) façade took place recently at the Engie Fabricom building in Zwijndrecht, close to Antwerp, Belgium.
Imec (Leuven, Belgium), a leading research and innovation hub in nanoelectronics, energy and digital technologies and partner in EnergyVille, has been named the coordinator of an ambitious 3-year European Union (EU) funded project. “ESPResSo” (Efficient Structures and Processes for Reliable Perovskite Solar Modules) gathers known leaders in the field of perovskite PV technology to revolutionise Europe’s photovoltaics (PV) industry.
