mitPlan: planning a PV system for boats Cluster-News: January 2018

The internationally active boatyard Frauscher offers yachts with electric motors. Since the beginning of June 2017, the batteries of the boats are charged with PV electricity. Frauscher was supported by the engineering office mitPlan. Since Frauscher’s highest electricity demand is mostly in the evening hours, optimal planning was necessary in order to make the best possible use of the PV system. In the future, it is foreseen that the PV system generate 20,000 kilowatt hours of solar electricity annually.

Profactor: MEM4WIN project Cluster-News: January 2018

Profactor developed a new quadruple-glazed insulating glass unit with ultra-thin glass membranes together with LiSEC in the EU project "MEM4WIN". The project shows that insulating glass has through a lowering of the energy required for production and an almost doubling of the insulation value (U-value 0.3 W/m²K) the potential to contribute to significantly reducing energy consumption. At the same time, important characteristics such as durability, weight, sound insulation, aesthetics, energy generation (organic PV, integrated solar collectors), daylight control (micro-mirrors) and costs were improved.
