Green energy and image
Solar facade is ecologically sustainable and meets the global need for renewable energy. The photovoltaic solar facade complies with the latest requirements for higher energy efficiency and helps in obtaining LEED and BREEAM credits. It also decreases real estate maintenance costs and reduces carbon emissions. Liberta Solar facade is a value adding solution for both the real estate owner and the end user.
12

Payback time
Payback time is dependent on a number of factors, including tariffs, the sun and weather conditions, geographical location and local energy pricing. If tariffs are used in your country, the produced energy will be fed into general grid and compensated with certain input price, after which electricity needed for the building is obtained at standard price. In countries where no tariffs are used, the produced energy will be utilized by the building itself.

Smaller garbon footprint - case example Finland


Annual electricity production ~ 84 kWh/m2 Annually avoided CO2 emissions 74 kg/m2.

ARCHITECTURE TECHNICAL INVESTMENT ENERGY & SOLUTION technology & ENERGY


Power generation & technology
Liberta Solar panels PV-modules are based on photovoltaic CIGS thin-lm technology (copper-indium-gallium-selenide) which is fast becoming the dominant technology in solar cells. The system is not dependent on solar heat, only on radiation, making energy collection possible even when the weather is overcast and/or during light summer nights in North. To maximize the energy generation it is recommended to design the Liberta Solar panel area as unied as possible and to be oriented southwards.
14

Technical solution
Ruukki Solar Facade is fully integrated facade system which converts solar radiation directly to electricity utilizing the most advanced and efficient PV-lm technology. 1. No visible cables, no penetrations to wall, all cables are in space behind the panels 2. Behind the wall electricity is collected via cables 3. The electricity is transmitted to the inverter via cables 4. Inverter converts the electricity into alternating current (AC) which is the most used power type of electrical devices

Quality guaranteed from raw material production to the end product and lifecycle. Materials can be re-used or recycled and used as a raw material for new steel or other products. For steel, aluminium and glass an extensive set of colours available.

The material thickness for Libertas and Lamellas: steel 1.2 mm, aluminium and Cor-Ten 1.5 mm. Design proles: steel 0.6 mm and Cor-Ten 1.0 mm

Weather-resistant Cor-Ten steel is used in architectural applications without requiring any separate surface treatment. The use of weather-resistant steel thus eliminates the need for surface treatments during the manufacturing and operational periods, in turn lowering the environmental load and costs throughout the products life cycle.

For inspiration - experience the shape and its details on the nished facade surface. Energise your facade with Liberta Solar panels. Visualize the material and colours in different lightings and from various perspectives with the Ruukki Design Palette visualizer: www.ruukki.com/designpalette For facilitating your work - CAD-tools, design guides and product infomation available when developing ideas and visions into a design project. Fast and easy installation - carefully considered details, clear guides and perfectly tting products. Information and tools can easily be found from our web pages: www.ruukki.com - building solutions - facade claddings: Dimensioning, Materials, Colours & coatings and availability Accessories: ashings to complete the facade with carefully nished details Design tools: Autocad 2D dwg -details and ready modelled 3D ocjects with accurate product information - are being frequently added and updated. Installation and maintenance guides Order forms & delivery instructions Contact information When developing your ideas and visions into a design project, we would like to give our best contribution to you.

User experiences and feedback from architects and contractors that Elmer Larsen, Manager at Ruukki Construction, expressed after presenting the Visualizer for the rst time in United Kindom:

"...Every single person which I presented the visualizer to have given very positive feedback to the Visualizer tool and generally have all been impressed with what it can do. Architects in particular are impressed and see this as a new idea and a way to get an initial idea to how various types of proles and colours would work and help them to get a better understanding of the nished product. Contractors do also feel that this will be useful to present ideas to a clients but also making it possible to get an instant message across during a meeting to establish potential alternatives..."

Positive challenge
The idea of Ruukki Design Palette has been to develop and offer a high-quality shape, material, colour and energy palette for construction professionals skilled hands - for you to have an excellent raw material palette available when designing, dening and implementing the character for the built environment. This is a way to support architects, investors, builders, contractors and installers to success even more when creating an aesthetic and sustainable environment in larger scale for all of us. The Palette applies to both good architecture in our everyday life as well for architectural stand-outs. We are developing the palette further and continuously expanding it with elegant products we can all be proud of. The latest newcomer - Liberta Solar Facade - will complete the Palette with new dimension, active energy generation. The facade cladding is no longer just a passive raincoat. This is one step on the mission for building architecturally high standard and sustainable environment for all of us. The journey how the Liberta Solar Facade has evolved is fascinating. In a big company like Ruukki, different functions and organisations in co-operation with customers as well, can create together a crossfunctional system - an ecosystem where different parties are sparring and feeding each other. And when able to conclude the development paths with combined effort, we are on the way for introducing innovative and successful end products like Solar Facade for you. However, without you it is not possible to succeed in the mission towards better environment. We contribute by doing our best - and would like to challenge you to join our journey with all of your competence and vision. Laura Paunila M. Sc. Architecture Manager for architectural claddings at Ruukki Construction

Behind the scenes - a glimpse of the Solar Facade story with our application expert. The research and development work started with special interest for solar energy and photovoltaic technology with business potential. Pretty soon we identied possibilities for building integrated solutions. The most promising integrated solution seemed to be the novel thin lm CIGS-technology combined with glass. At the same time we identied a product - Liberta Glass panels - innovated recently within Ruukki, that would provide a perfect platform when developing the building integrated photovoltaic solution further. The Liberta Glass panels were developed for architecturally high standard and cost efficient new type of solution for a glass facade, utilizing Ruukkis well known Liberta Rainscreen panel system in an innovative way. Then we simply combined the Liberta Glass panel with photovoltaic thin lm modules. This simple, yet clever combination sealed the successful outcome - spearhead product to be introduced to the markets.
