The required properties of the facade system should be achieved by using highly efficient thermal insulation elements (vacuum thermal insulation), increasing the thermal capacity by means of state-changing materials, active hydraulic and photovoltaic systems, recycled battery storage and frames based on bio-composites.
The behavior of this system will be verified through both extensive simulations and measurements in real conditions on pilot installations in selected buildings. We are currently preparing the installation of measuring equipment for monitoring the reference condition before installing the POWERSKIN+ system.
The baseline measurement is planned for a total of 18 months and focuses on:
The POWERSKIN+ project received financial support from the European Union's Horizon 2020 research and innovation program under grant agreement No. 869898.
