It does look odd, but the building is at least being brought back to life and benefiting from a new lease of life. So its not just new buildings that can incorporate PV cells into the fabric but old cladded buildings can also indulge. I wonder what more you can do with older buildings? Could we see PV bricks? I hope in the future and so do many researchers that PV is totally ubiquitous – finding its way into everything from car panels to roofing sheets…and what’s more…it might even add to the strength and lifetime of the product.
