Invisible solar collectors can even be red or white

The first demonstration of the novel façade solar thermal collectors of the FITS4E project has been installed at the outdoor testing location SolarBEAT. The project aims to demonstrate façade panels with an invisible thermal solar collector for increased energy harvesting. ‘FITS4E’ focusses at application development, system design, performance testing, demonstration and dissemination. The performance of the panel will be tested for a full year at the outdoor testing facility of SEAC. TNO is the project leader, Emergo is responsible for developing the collector and façade element and AkzoNobel for the smart coating.
