High-Performance Nano Insulation Materials for Energy-Efficient Buildings

, , , , , , , , , ,
High-performance nano insulation materials (Hi-Per NIM) may be developed by exploiting the Knudsen effect for reduced thermal conductivity and thus make thermal insulation materials with a nanoporous air-filled structure. Hence, these NIMs are supposed to [...]

A Review of Research Pathways and Opportunities for Building Integrated Photovoltaics from a Materials Science Perspective

, , , , ,
The demand for energy-efficient and energy-harvesting buildings is increasing, hence initiating the exploration of miscellaneous solutions. Building integrated photovoltaics (BIPV) may in this respect represent a powerful and versatile tool for achieving the ever increasing [...]
