The construction, modules installation and grid connection works for one of the carports have been finalized near Zurich. The carport structure has been built around curved, lightweight CIGS flexible modules, providing both functional and aesthetic value. More detailed information on the development of a metal-based CIGS modules for building integration is provided in the recently published report “Roofing tiles and façade elements prototypes with 10% - 14% efficiency”, available at the project website.
The carport includes an Electric Vehicle charger, so that the produced electricity can be used on location. The carport is connected to the grid since June 2018, with production being monitored through an online platform.
