The PHOSTER project consists of the development of highly efficient eco-designed building integrated photovoltaic roofing units using an innovative and greener manufacturing process. The project intends to contribute strongly to the expansion and promotion of solar energy and to address climate change.
A prototype of a new universal solar steel roof envelope was designed, manufactured, installed and its power production monitored during the project’s 54-month timeframe.DOWNLOAD LEAFLET
