Invisible innovation

This is the secret of the photovoltaic panel hidden inside the Tegolasolare tile, one of the best examples of BIPV, Building Integrated PhotoVoltaics, the future of photovoltaic systems thanks to its architectural integration. The system - patented by Area Franceram Group - can transform an ordinary roof into a power station

The roof tile of the future

The tiles are made from a sophisticated spray-dried red porcelain mix: these are genuine ceramic tiles. When a photovoltaic panel is combined with a brick tile, problems arise because the tile has greater heat induction and produces an efficiency curve in the panel, which tends to bend. This is the reason for the use of the porcelain tile mix, since this is a colder material and much more energy-efficient
