Colored solar panels open aesthetic possibilities

Lausanne-based SwissINSO and the Ecole Polytechnique Federale de Lausanne announced the culmination of what Prof. Jean-Louis Scartezzini described as ten years of research and development and millions of euros of investment.

The SwissINSO Kromatix panels, which will be available in blue, green, terracotta, gray and yellow, could revolutionze building integrated PV and solar panel aesthetics.

The Kromatix glass combines the deposition by vacuum plasma of a colored nano multi-layered treatment to the inner side of the glass with a modification of the coating applied to the outer surface, SwissINSO claimed at a press launch of the product today.
