PV integration in buildings and in infrastructure unlocks a huge potential for renewable electricity generation. Integrated PV require individual solutions in order to meet multi-functional and aesthetic requirements such as yield-friendly colouring or modular transparency, antifouling property, structural flexibility, module lightness and flexibility, suited voltage levels, the use of and combination with (building) materials other than glass, and an overall high aesthetical value that addresses the requirements of architects and designers.
Proposals are expected to:
Demonstrations are expected to be carried out in more than one different construction typologies (residential buildings, tertiary building [hospitals, schools, public administration buildings, etc.]), or civil infrastructures (roadways, noise barriers, parking lots, bridges, etc.) and in more than one location in Europe.
A plan for the exploitation and dissemination of results should include a strong business case and sound exploitation strategy, as outlined in the introduction to this Destination. The exploitation plan should include preliminary plans for scalability, commercialisation, and deployment (feasibility study, business plan) indicating the possible funding sources to be potentially used (in particular the Innovation Fund).
Projects are expected to contribute to the New European Bauhaus (NEB) initiative by interacting with the NEB Community, NEBLab and other relevant actions of the NEB initiative through sharing information, best practice, and, where relevant, results.
Photovoltaic products are considered to be building-integrated, if they have been designed following the basic requirements for construction works in order to form and/or replace a construction product. If the integrated PV product is dismounted, it would have to be replaced by an appropriate conventional construction product. Building and infrastructure integrated PV can be a cost-effective, technologically proven solution to decarbonise buildings and infrastructure.
Consequently, project results are expected to contribute to all of the following expected outcomes:

To be eligible for funding, applicants must be established in one of the following countries:
Only legal entities forming a consortium are eligible to participate in actions provided that the consortium includes, as beneficiaries, three legal entities independent from each other and each established in a different country as follows:
Any legal entity, regardless of its place of establishment, including legal entities from non-associated third countries or international organisations (including international European research organisations) is eligible to participate (whether it is eligible for funding or not), provided that the conditions laid down in the Horizon Europe Regulation have been met, along with any other conditions laid down in the specific call topic.
A ‘legal entity’ means any natural or legal person created and recognised as such under national law, EU law or international law, which has legal personality and which may, acting in its own name, exercise rights and be subject to obligations, or an entity without legal personality.
