Abstract

In this paper we explore how PV powered products have been designed in the past. For this purpose we have drawn a historical time line of the design features of PV powered products in the context of main stream design and styling. Our time frame is 1970 till 2016, focusing in first instance on consumer products and PV powered lamps. We will discuss how we learn from these experiences for the design and styling of future PV powered products. Because design and styling is considered one of the key features to a well-designed product, this study is relevant for the acceptability of PV products in nowadays consumer markets. Despite many studies on the technical functioning and energy performance of PV powered products, little attention has been paid to a constructive analysis of design and styling. Therefore with this study we make a start with identifying which design and styling factors can contribute to a higher appreciation for PV powered products.
