|BI PV Project Summary|
© Thomas Kirschner (http://www.sto.at/htmger/obj067.htm)
|Year||2004-12 (Start operation date)|
|PV application||Façade - integrated in glass system (no see through)|
|PV power total||28 kWp|
|Summary||SOL4-Eichkogel is an office and seminar center for ecological planning, building and working which encourage the cooperation of companies in this sector. The project SOL4-Eichkogel is characterized by the following innovations:
-Zero-Energy building with ecological building material like straw insulation, dried mudbricks interior walls and other innovative insulations. Thereby a heat requirement lower than 15 kwh/m²a and a heating load < 10 W/m² is reached.
-Borehole heat exchangers combines with a heat pump provide the remainder heat requiremient of SOL4 without use of fossil fuels.
-SOL4 has been solely built without environmentally compatible materials.
-A facade integrated photovoltaic System fulfils the optically aesthetic requirement of the building and covers the power requirements.|
