HyLighT Project

HyLighT project proposes a novel BIPV concept, which combines the following features:
-The use of natural lighting, using a well-established concept, the light tube
-The utilization of renewable energy technologies to meet the needs of artificial lighting

 

The combination of the above resulted to a Hybrid Light Tube (HyLighT). HyLighT project aims at the design and manufacturing of a novel concept, namely the integration of a CIGS thin-film photovoltaic membrane to a light tube. The main idea behind the proposed concept is that the energy produced by the photovoltaic membrane will be stored and used by demand to cover the needs for artificial lighting.

 

The project was funded in terms of the SOLAR-ERA.NET Transnational Calls 2013:PV1 and CSP1.
