The BERLIN Smart Tool, developed by University of Western Macedonia and within the BERLIN project, calculates the proper size and combination of photovltaics and battery storage system in order to reach self-sufficiency in buildings. The online tool aims to promote self-sufficiency in buildings with flexible loads, by properly sizing the photovoltaic and battery storage systems to be installed in a building, and by providing an efficient schedule for the flexible loads.

The goal when building in the Efficiency House Plus standard is to ensure that the renewable energy generated on-site over the course of a year exceeds the energy required for the building´s operation and use. The energy required for operation and use includes the scope according to the Energy Performance of Buildings Directive (EPBD) and additionally the energy required for electrical equipment.

The SuPerTandem project aims to accelerate Europe’s transition to clean energy by developing innovative photovoltaic (PV) manufacturing technologies for 2-terminal tandem cells and monolithically connected modules on flexible foils using low cost solution-processed perovskite absorber layers. Such devices feature efficiencies above 30%, performance stability profiles comparable to c-Si technologies, and excellent sustainability profile.
