Within the scope of the project LaWin (supported by the European Commission within its Horizon 2020 program), an innovative material solution will be developed for efficient solar energy and ambient heat harvesting through an active building envelope. This uses large-area microfluid devices, which are implemented into windows and facades. As a key feature, the LaWin devices are designed for compatibility with existing process chains in window and facade manufacture such as used in e.g. triple glazing.
This project is funded by the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement no. 637108.
This project participates in the AMANAC Cluster, by developing advance materials and nanotechnologies for improving energy efficiency in buildings with a forward looking to circular economy policy. The current H2020 running projects are:
