The kick-off meeting of Powerskin +, a project led by Instituto Pedro Nunes Institute through the Laboratory for Wear, Testing & Materials (LED & MAT), took place in Brussels, Belgium on 9-10 October.


This project aims to develop a truly innovative façade solution by smart integration of highly energy-efficient components including super-insulative elements, solar energy harvesting components and active energy storage features, in one single combined active/passive management system, to especially address the modern lightweight Curtain Wall and Double Skin Frame (DSF) retrofitting solutions for non-residential buildings.


POWERSKIN+ intends to be at the forefront of the first generation of off-site prefabricated, modular “ready-to-buy” and easy-to-install glazing and opaque elements, with sustainable eco-designed connecting framings, improved functional coatings, active and passive thermal energy storage (TES) technology solutions and integrated semi-transparent PV cells. The solar electric harvesting features will be matched and completed with a dedicated large capacity building electric storage system, in a true energy management turnkey package. This project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No 869898.
