Overall, ETFE-MFM aims to enhance the use of Building Integrated Photovoltaics elements in the construction industry. To do this, the project will develop an ETFE Multifunctional Module for attractive textile architecture,
which integrates PV devices to generate electricity, acts as a glazing system, has external battery storage, integrates LEDs and OLEDs, and includes flexible integrated control devices.
The module will provide an innovative element for BIPV integration, and hopes to help bring the ETFE architecture from being a niche product, to one with wide application. The module will result in ecological and societal benefits, including CO2 reductions, construction cost savings, enhanced building quality and greater energy independence.
