building-integrated photovoltaics

The ambition of the ACTIVE INTERFACES research project is to bring a relevant contribution to the "Energy Strategy 2050". To reach the energy vision of the Confederation, 10 GW of photovoltaic power are required. In that perspective, through a holistic approach - from industrial production to local implementation - the project will bring a decisive strategic contribution to cross over the current obstacles for a large-scale advanced implementation of building-integrated photovoltaics (BIPV) into urban renewal processes.

The ACTIVE INTERFACES research project is part of the National Research Programme "Energy Turnaround" (NRP 70) of the Swiss National Science Foundation (SNSF).
