Design of an Active Façade System with Peltier Cells

Some of the collaborators of this blog and teachers of the School of Architecture of the University of Navarra, have developed a new HVAC system with Peltier cells. The result is an article in a peer reviewed magazine.

Peltier

The proposal analyzes the advantages and drawbacks of this solution for an active façade and its different thermal behaviour in winter and summer. The Peltier cells are a great solution if its combined with a photovoltaic system to supply the necessary energy.

More studies and developments are being carried out and the construction of a new prototype is on its way.
