ZigZagSolar is an innovative façade BIPV application designed by Wallvision BV. It consists of tilted PV modules in combination with decorative panels. This layout allows for an optimal orientation of the PV modules, while they remain out of sight.
We created on the SEAC BIPV research facility SolarBEAT a new pilot in this concept, now for the first time using flexible thin film CIGS modules manufactured by Miasolé.
A potential advantage of the Miasolé modules in this application is that the layout of the PV cells make the performance less susceptible to inhomogeneous irradiance. Also the lower weight and the ease of handling and mounting are advantages.
