Designing energies in high density population areasPE PvFL 0

jointly with ENEA, Becquerel Institute, ULB-Ecole Polytechnique de Bruxelles, ETA-Florence, with the support of the European Commission JRCspacerspacer

Day: Wednesday, 26 September 2018
Time: 13:30 – 18:30
Site: Audit. The Arc, Level 3
Access: Open to all Conference participants (on days registered)

This event is co-organized this year with Becquerel Institute and focuses on the role of PV in architecture, the specifics of BIPV in urban development and landscapes.

  • This event fits perfectly with the IEA-PVPS Task 15 and the Forum session dedicated to the manufacturing of BIPV.

PHOTOVOLTAICS | FORMS | LANDSCAPES is an annual event which takes place as a special side event at the series of European Photovoltaic Solar Energy Conference and Exhibition since 2011. In this session, architects, landscape architects and other environmental designers/researcher are given the floor to share their ideas on how to advance the realization of energy systems while establishing aesthetic qualities in our daily living environment. The event is co-organized by: ENEA (scientific organization) and ETA-Florence Renewable Energies (organization and promotion), with the support of Becquerel Institute and ULB-Ecole Polytechnique de Bruxelles.
