Abstract

Improvement of the energy performance of innovative building component (patented by the authors) for façades and roofs able to reduce building energy consumption and to produce clean electricity from the sun. Design optimization of sub-components used to dry assemble translucent multifunctional panels made of precast and pre-stressed innovative glass blocks integrated with 3rd-generation PV technology. Adaptation of the initial configuration of the component to simplify the production process, both in the prototyping and commercialization phases as well as to speed up the assembling operations for a reduction of construction times and costs.
