PV applications run from field installations, to building added PV to PV integrated into building, infrastructure and landscapes. Specifically, applications of integrated PV may demand very different properties of the PV panels, such as design, shade tolerance, resistance to harsh climatic conditions and the ability to capture light under non ideal conditions. However, the solar panels in production still mainly are ‘one size fits all’. In this paper, ECN will present its developments towards utilizing the mass manufactured building blocks with novel module and system designs for increased application and usage.
