History of brick tile for Photovoltaics

More: History of brick tile for Photovoltaics The idea of the photovoltaic tile comes from the restructuring project of Acquabella's castle, in the forest of Vallombrosa in Tuscany. When the castle has been built the roof has been realised with tiles of dimentions and that were able to face cold winters and strond winds and that now are particularly able to face the much more frequent climatic emergencies. The actual idea wants to conjugate to tradition and modernity: in fact it is usually used a tile that has demonstrated a great stability for its own simple but intelligent system that permit to link one to another, moreover it keeps visually te tradition of the roof and now it is binded together to a source of clean energy. Two kind of tiles cames from this idea, the model DF2 is similar to the alpine type and the model DF3 that is similar to the portoguese type. These kind of tiles are of greater dimentions compared to those one that are in commerce (even if they have the same medium weight) and they have on the external face a little photovoltaic panel discrete dimentions, modular together to the others and almost invisible, differently from the products actually in commerce. The most important characteristic of the DF1 and DF2 tiles is that they can be used without the application of the photovoltaic panel as well, its application can be made in a second time without problem. This system permit rapidly the maintenance and the eventual replacing of the panels with others, with better characteristics, that the new technology will be able to offer in future, keeping the same tiles as support. The application field for this kind of tile is usually valid for every kind of roof, but it is necessary to have a...
