A solar panels facade could be the simplest and most effortless way for a building to create electrical power. A sun panel facade is perfect not just for office and commercial construction, but also for residential and commercial construction. The program does not limit choice of base supplies or form of building as well as the facade can be installed in newbuild and renovation construction and on distinct bases.

Ruukki has developed a photovoltaic program that continues to be totally integrated into a facade to convert sun rays into energy. The solar power system does not rely on the sun’s warmth, only its radiation. The electricity produced is used either to meet the building’s personal needs or is fed into the electrical power grid.

The solar panel facade has been designed for application in buildings of a high architectural normal that comply with increasingly stricter environmental regulations. Developed and patented by Ruukki, the program is totally integrated into the facade and will be the most cost-effective way available on the market to produce a fully-glazed facade that generates power from the sun. The technique enables energy to be created even in locations with no direct sun rays because the technologies also can utilise sun rays in cloudy weather. In snowy regions and subsequent to water, the method increases output from reflected rays.

“The solar panel facade is Ruukki’s response towards the have to create energy from renewable energy sources. The principle message with the product is sustainable development and ecology, which are combined with Ruukki’s newest technological innovations and the newest technological innovation obtainable,” says Jouni Metsamaki, SVP, Constructing Elements, at Ruukki.In the facade of an average-sized workplace creating in Finland, for instance, Ruukki’s solar panel facade can make 18,000 kWh of electrical power a year. That is sufficient to meet the annual desires of a medium-sized, electrically-heated small-family home. Output and capability can quickly be elevated based on the region obtainable and capability requirement.

“The exclusive notion in Ruukki’s solar power method is the fact that it’s completely integrated into the facade with the creating, both functionally and visually. The virtually entirely black fully-glazed facade enables options of a high architectural normal,” says architect Laura Paunila at Ruukki. No visible fastenings have been utilised and thanks to their even colouring, the PV modules according to thin-film technological innovation are aesthetically pleasing, as opposed to, as an example, panels of crystalline silicon.
