Solar cells do not have to be black. And they can become part of the house façades of the future

Solar panels with different colours can be integrated in the façades of buildings and become an aesthetically exciting part of the architecture. DTU collaborates with façade contractor HSHansen to document the effect of different-coloured photovoltaic elements.

  • The project has a total budget of DKK 7 million and is a collaboration between MG Solar ApS, HSHansen A/S, and DTU.
  • It runs until mid-2023.
  • In the project, HSHansen is working to further develop the HansenUnitAl system with a UnitSol product range, where coloured BIPV modules (building-integrated photovoltaics) can be integrated in the prefabricated modules.
