Organic PV film Lechwerke AG (LEW; Augsburg, Germany; www.lew.de) has extended its “Energy Façade” project by integrating HeliaFilm, a solar film made by Heliatek GmbH (Dresden, Germany; www.heliatek.com). Over the next few years, the resulting test platform will be used to measure the output of the organic photovoltaic (PV) films in a direct comparison to conventional solar technology. The building has now been upgraded both energetically and visually by this BiOPV (Building Integrated Organic PhotoVoltaics) solution.   As part of the Energy Façade project, which was launched three years ago, two areas of Lechwerke’s southern façade have now been equipped with SVK fiber-cement elements covered by HeliaFilm. A total area of 56 m² with an installed capacity of 2.43 kWp is expected to deliver an estimated 2,000 kWh/yr.   The solar film HeliaFilm, developed and produced by Heliatek, are integrated directly into the building material at the factory of façade element producer SVK (Sint-Niklaas, Belgium; www.svk.be). They are then simply connected at the construction site. The low weight of the films (1 kg/m2) allows for an easy and low-cost integration on both new and existing façades. HeliaFilm is said to reduce a…
