Abstract

[automatically translated] The invention relates to the integration of the glass block with hybrid solar cells (organic / inorganic), known as Dye-sensitized Solar Cell (DSC). The combination of glass slabs with DSC allows you to improve the performance of the original product, making it able to produce clean energy. The characteristics of transparency and thermal and acoustic insulation of the product can be adjusted by acting on the configuration of the DSC. The product may be assembled to form photovoltaic panels for the realization of translucent energetically "active" facades in various light conditions (or diffuse artificial light conditions) and irrespective of the angle of solar radiation. DSC can be printed in different colors and with various designs, allowing you to take action on the appearance of glass block and to realize, when installed in panels, facade designs thanks to the modularity of the product. The aforementioned photovoltaic panels constitute the envelope of the building, resulting in advantageous economies of materials and costs, not being necessary further technical support elements. The invention presents seven hypotheses of integration of the DSC with the glass block, for the realization of a product to be assembled "dry" into photovoltaic panels. In the latter, the wire harness and the stiffening bars are accommodated in the support structure, which may consist of plastic profiles arranged in horizontal and in vertical in the cavity generated by the combination and by the juxtaposition of the glass blocks.
