The kick-off meeting of POWERSKIN+ took place on the 10th of October 2019 in Brussels, in the European Commission building, with the participation of Project Officer Yanaris Ortega Garcia.
The project aims to develop a truly innovative façade solution by smart integration of highly energy efficient components including super-insulative elements, solar energy harvesting components and active energy storage features, in one single combined active/passive management system, to especially address the modern lightweight Curtain Wall and Double Skin Frame (DSF) retrofitting solutions for non-residential buildings.
POWERSKIN+ intends to be at the forefront of the first generation of off-site prefabricated, modular “ready-to-buy” and easy-to-install glazing and opaque elements, with sustainable eco designed connecting framings, improved functional coatings, active and passive thermal energy storage (TES) technology solutions and integrated semi-transparent PV cells. The solar electric harvesting features will be matched and completed with a dedicated large capacity building electric storage system, in a true energy management turnkey package.
