The NCPV group focuses integrating novel technologies to Photovoltaic (PV) modules so that better performance or new functionalities can be achieved. Our research includes aspects such as anti-soiling technologies, which can increase the energy yield and/or reduce operational costs of PV installations; bettering the aesthetics of PV modules via colouration, which can be of particular interest for architectural purposes; and graphic designing of PV modules, which can enable PV modules to be used for signage or media. High-efficiency and long lifetime remain primary objectives as always in the PV world.
