Abstract

This paper shows the results of a design study on possible applications for Luminescent Solar Concentrator PV technologies. The study was focused on product integration of LSC PV technologies and executed by about 40 students Industrial Design Engineering at University of Twente (NL) in a period of 10 weeks in 2016. In total 16 different and highly innovative conceptual designs resulted from this project which were prototyped as scale to show their feasibility and integration features. These conceptual designs ranged from a tourist shelter to a garden fence and from greenhouse panels to safety staircases. In this paper we present several concepts and we discuss relevant findings for the integration of LSC PV technologies in future products and buildings. In all of the presented concepts, the transparency and color of the LSC material played a major role in the function and appearance of the designs. Moreover, the project showed that the typical material properties of LSCs; low cost, colorful, bendable, and transparent do not only offer a lot of design freedom, but also offer excellent possibilities to incorporate this technology into the overall function and experience of applications.
