Colour-coated Solar Panels for the Built Environment

TU Delft has developed a coating for solar panels that reflects a specific part of the light spectrum. The coating can be used to achieve desired properties, like panel colouring and limited panel heating. The use of this coating makes it possible to integrate solar cells invisibly or aesthetically in the built environment without compromising on efficiency.
