walkable photovoltaic roof. still in research and development stage. with butech engineers. made using a solar photovoltaic glass laminated over elevated ceramic roof tiles. resulting in a completely walkable surface.
one of its main attractions is the variety of uses and the fact that it is possible to place furnishings on it without losing space, as would happen if conventional photovoltaic panels were installed.
this photovoltaic pavement is a really appealing product for designers as it can be integrated in any project and environment without renouncing design and aestheticism. what’s more, it combines passive elements (avoided CO2 emissions) with active elements (power generation), greatly reducing the building’s environmental impact.
currently, a backlit walkable photovoltaic roof is under development.
