Horizon prize for Integrated Photovoltaic System in European Protected Historic Urban districts
|Description of call |
"Horizon prize for Integrated Photovoltaic System in European Protected Historic Urban districts"
inducement prize will reward a European protected historic urban district that has perfectly integrated in its buildings a
photovoltaic system to generate and supply electricity for its own consumption. In this context the photovoltaic system includes
all the necessary components to supply power within a district.
The prize will induce the integration of new photovoltaic systems in protected historic urban districts. It will also foster the development of the best suitable architectural and aesthetic design in combination with optimal technical solutions delivering the least visible impact and a minimal intrusion to the structure of the buildings. The prize aims as well to mobilise and enhance private and public investment for replication of similar solutions in Europe.
