Within the EC-JOULE project "AIRLIT-PV", a new facade unit, integrating ventilation, daylighting, solar protection, intelligent local control and photovoltaic power, has been developed and is under evaluation by means of performance testing at four different test sites in Europe, both in test cells and in occupied buildings. This paper will summarise an extensive market survey, describe the shape and function of the unit and report on the first findings from the performance testing of the units. The ventilation performance will be emphasised.
