English abstract:
The development of photovoltaic modules is still primarily driven by the idea of economies of scales which leads to
unvaried PV modules that are only good for large- area installations. These photovoltaic modules are not suitable for
the integration into building skins, roof tiles or electric devices because of their rigidness and their electrical
SolarDesign project addresses these obstacles by the development of novel solar cell materials, manufacturing
processes and supportive actions to improve communication in the design value chain. One key technology is a novel
monolithic interconnection process forthin- film solar cells that simplify the production of thin-film modules and allows
adjusting the essential properties of a PV module "on-the-fly" without excessive set-up times. lt allows adjusting the
electrical properties of a given PV module on the fly as weil as the production of fully customized photovoltaic modules
in respect to size, shape and patterns. The novel PV material will be demonstrated in design driven prototypes ranging
from solar charged mobile devices, solar lighting, building integrated PV to full integration in smart textiles.
