Even if the quality and durability of active solar systems equipments are henceforth ensured, there arestill some considerable barriers to the development of their market, in particular their architectural andtechnical integration to the buildings. Our research aims at studying, designing and realizing astructural component of building ensuring in a permanent and integrated way the set of functionsnormally provided by elements of faade and by thermal liquid-cooled collectors. The product isintended to be distributed and implemented by building professionals.
