Short description
Solar potential on Swiss roofs and façades is large (67TWh / y, SFOE-2019). New PV technologies allow to stimulate architectural integration (BIPV) with innovative products. However, it is necessary to face the thematics of reliability and safety in order to reduce the risk in the building sector. For this purpose, a set of innovative BIPV products at the early stages on the market, will be tested, in nominal and accelerated conditions, indoors and outdoors on representative mock-ups. The study of failure modes and the analysis of the causes will make it possible to predict reliability in different climatic conditions.
