Description

Title: Roofing element with at least one solar cell.

The invention relates to a roofing element provided with at least one electric solar cell.

Such a roofing element is known, inter alia, from DE-U1-295 10 147 discloses a roofing element in the form of and with the dimensions of a regular roof tile, which is provided with a solar cell. With these roof tile elements, which are known per se, a roof covering can be assembled which is also adapted for generating electric energy. A drawback of the known roofing element is that a very large number of roofing elements are required for assembling a roofing material, which roofing elements moreover have to be electrically connected to each other to deliver the electrical energy generated in the solar cells of these elements. This makes it completely susceptible to failure. Moreover, a roofing material composed of such roofing elements requires a large number of electrical interconnections, which is a relatively expensive matter.

The object of the invention is to obviate the drawbacks outlined above. The roofing element according to the invention is accordingly characterized in that the roofing element is in the form of a plurality of roof tiles which are arranged in rows and / or columns relative to each other in the roof tiles.

Because the roofing element has the shape (and thus the dimensions) of a plurality of roof tiles arranged in rows and / or columns in relation to each other in tiles, the advantage arises that much less roofing elements are required to be assembled into a roofing material than with the known system outlined above. Preferably, the at least one electric solar cell is in the form of a plurality of roof tiles which are arranged in rows and / or columns in a roof tile

100941B

2 are arranged relative to each other. As a result, the at least one solar cell will have a surface area which is much larger than with the known roofing elements, whereby it is moreover achieved that the appearance of the roofing element as a whole retains the form of a plurality of roof tiles which are arranged in rows and / or columns in relation to tiles are arranged apart.

A roof covering composed of a roof covering element according to the invention can therefore not be distinguished from a roof covering composed of regular roof tiles. Preferably, it applies that the roofing element is provided with one electrical connection for connecting the at least one solar cell.

Since fewer roof covering elements according to the invention are required to be assembled into a roof covering, fewer electrical connections are accordingly required than with the known system. As a result, a roof covering which is provided with roof covering elements according to the invention is less susceptible to malfunction and moreover relatively advantageous.

In particular, it holds that the roofing element is composed of a rigid plate in the form of a plurality of roof tiles arranged in rows and / or 25 columns relative to each other and the at least one solar cell, the at least one solar cell being on a side of the rigid sheet is placed which, in use, lies at the top of the roofing element.

According to a preferred embodiment, however, it applies that the roofing element is composed of a sunlight-transparent rigid plate which is in the form of a plurality of roof tiles arranged in rows and / or columns with respect to each other and the at least one solar cell, wherein the at least one solar cell is mounted on one side of the rigid plate which, in 1 OOP i 10 3 use, lies on the underside of the roofing element.

The advantage of this embodiment is that the at least one solar cell is protected from outside weather influences by the transparent rigid plate 5. This makes the roofing element particularly reliable, while also extending the life of the at least one solar cell.

For the special embodiments outlined above, it preferably holds that the at least one solar cell is made of a flexible sheet-shaped material. In particular, the at least one solar cell is glued to the rigid plate. However, other connections are also possible.

According to a special embodiment of the roofing element according to the invention, it holds that only a part of the rigid plate which, when used as roofing material in combination with other roofing elements, is not covered by these other roofing elements 20, is provided with the at least one solar cell.

This achieves that only those parts of the roofing element which, in use, are exposed to light and can therefore generate electrical energy, may be provided with the at least one solar cell.

In particular, it holds that the roofing element is further provided with electrical terminals for delivering electrical energy generated by the at least one solar cell.

The roofing element can for instance have a standard size of 1.1 m by 8.4 m. In general, it will apply that the roofing element has an area larger than 2 m2. However, it is also possible that the roofing element has dimensions such that only one roofing element is required to form a roofing material.

1009418 4

According to a very advanced embodiment, it holds that the roofing element is further provided with at least one liquid flow channel for heating liquid by means of solar energy which flows through the channel in use as a roof covering.

In this way, both electrical and thermal energy can be generated.

The invention will now be further elucidated with reference to the drawing. Herein: Figure 1a shows a first embodiment of a roofing element according to the invention; figure 1b shows a cross-section of the roofing element according to figure 1a; figure 2a shows a second embodiment of the roofing element according to the invention; figure 2b shows a cross-section of the roofing element according to figure 2a; figure 3a shows a third embodiment of the roofing element according to the invention; and figure 3b shows a cross-section of the roofing element according to figure 3a.

A first embodiment of a roofing element according to the invention is described with reference to Figures 1a and 1b. In figure 1a, the roofing element is indicated with reference number 1.

The roofing element 1 is in the form of a plurality of roof tiles 2. In this example, the roofing element is in the form of five horizontal rows of roof tiles, each comprising six roof tiles. The roof tiles are arranged in rows and columns relative to each other.

The roofing element is further provided with a solar cell 4 which is also in the form of a plurality of roof tiles which are arranged in rows and columns with respect to each other. More particularly, the roofing element 1 is composed of a rigid plate 6 which is in the form of the said plurality of roof tiles, which are arranged in rows and columns relative to each other and the at least one solar cell. The solar cell 4 is manufactured from a flexible sheet material 8 which is known per se. In this example, the at least one solar cell, that is to say the sheet material 8, is arranged on a side 10 of the rigid plate 6 which, in use, is attached to the top of the roofing element. In other words, the solar cell 104 is located at the top of the roofing element 1. In this example, the sheet-like material 8 known per se comprises a plurality of solar cells. These solar cells are electrically connected in parallel and / or in series. The at least one solar cell 4, ie the sheet-like material 8, is glued to the rigid plate 6 in this example. However, it is also conceivable for other techniques to be used for attaching the at least one solar cell 4 to the rigid plate 6. The plate 6 may consist of a metal roof tile plate known per se.

In use, a roof covering of a house and / or building can be formed by at least one roof covering element. More specifically, a limited number of roofing elements will be used to form a roofing material. The 25 roofing elements are also stacked roof-wise. As can be seen in figure 1a, only a part of the rigid plate 6 which, when used as roofing in combination with other roofing elements, is not covered by these other roofing elements, is provided with the at least one solar cell (ie in this example the sheet material 8). The horizontal edge 12 and the vertical edge 14 are therefore not covered by the sheet-like material 8. These are the edges which, when the respective roofing element 1 is assembled together with other roofing elements, as the

1 0 00 4 1 R

6 roofing materials are under these other roofing elements.

The roofing element is further provided with an electrical connection in the form of electrical terminals 16 for delivering electrical energy generated by the at least one solar cell 4, 8. For this purpose, a wire lead-through opening 18 is arranged in the roofing element, through which electrical connecting wires 20, which are provided at a free end with the said terminal blocks 16, are passed from the side 10 of the roofing element to the side of the roofing element opposite the side 10. The passage opening 18 is arranged at a position which, in use as a roof covering, in combination with at least one other roof covering element, is covered by this other roof covering element. This prevents leakage. In addition, it is achieved that the electrical connecting wires 20 are protected from external weather influences.

Figures 2a and 2b show a second embodiment 20 of a roofing element according to the invention. Parts corresponding to Figures 1a and 1b are provided with the same reference number. In the second embodiment, the roofing element is provided with a sunlight-transparent rigid plate 6, which is for instance made of glass or a transparent plastic. The transparent rigid plate 6 is again in the form of a plurality of roof tiles 2 which are arranged in rows and columns relative to each other in a roof tile. In this example, the at least one solar cell 4 is arranged on a side 22 of the rigid plate 6, which in use lies on the underside of the roofing element. In use, sunlight will fall on the side 10 of the roofing element 1 and then reach the at least one solar cell 4 via the transparent plate 6. In this example, the at least one solar cell 4 is again manufactured from the per se known 1009418 7 sheet-shaped flexible material, which is fastened to the rigid plate 6, for example by means of transparent glue. Because the at least one solar cell 4 in this example is attached to the underside of the rigid plate, the passage opening 18 discussed in relation to Figures 1a and 1b can be omitted. The aforementioned connection terminals 16 and the connection wires 20 are present.

Finally, a third embodiment of a roofing element 10 according to the invention is discussed with reference to Figures 3a and 3b. Parts corresponding to the previous figures are again provided with the same reference number.

The roofing element is again provided with a metal rigid plate 6 which is in the form of a plurality of roof tiles arranged in rows and / or columns relative to each other. However, in the middle row 24 of the roof tiles 2 arranged horizontally relative to each other, three openings 26 are provided, the size of which is a single roof tile 2. A solar cell 4 is arranged in each of these openings 26. In contrast to the embodiments outlined above, the solar cell 4 is not made of a sheet-shaped flexible material. This is also not necessary since the solar cell 4 can now assume a thickness which is greater, equal or smaller than the thickness of the rigid plate 6. It is true that each solar cell 4 has the shape of a roof tile. The solar cells 4 are therefore also arranged in rows of tiles and / or columns relative to each other. Each solar cell 4 is provided with electrical connection terminals 16 and electrical connection wires 20. The solar cells 4 can be electrically connected to each other in the factory for mounting the roof tile panel on a roof, for example in a series or parallel connection or a combination thereof.

The roofing element 1 is furthermore provided with two fluid flow channels 30, each of which is adapted for solar heating a 1009418 8 fluid (liquid or gas) which flows through each of the channels 30 in use. In fact, the channels 30 are each arranged in the metal rigid plate 6. Since it will heat up under the influence of the sun, the fluid flowing through the channels 30 will also be well heated. The roofing element according to figure 3a is therefore suitable for generating electrical and thermal energy.

The invention is by no means limited to the above-described embodiments. For example, the roofing element can also be in the form of only a row of roof tiles arranged in relation to one another in relation to each other. The roofing element can also be in the form of only one column of roof tiles which are arranged in a roofing fashion relative to each other. Preferably, however, the roofing element is in the form of roof tiles arranged in rows and columns in a tile-like manner relative to each other. The roofing element will herein preferably have a standard size (for instance length) of 1.1 m by 8.4 m. The solar cell 4 and / or the rigid plate 6 can consist of various colors. In particular, the at least one solar cell 4 can have a color corresponding to the color of a real roof tile. In particular, for the first and third embodiments, the at least one solar cell has a color corresponding to the color of the rigid plate 2. The solar cell can consist of translucent solar cells and non-translucent solar cells. A converter may be provided in the roofing element. The roofing element can be of such a size that it can cover an entire roof. The rigid plate can be made of various materials, such as plastic, polyester, glass or recycled waste material. The rigid plate 6 can also consist of a roof tile plate known per se which is commercially available. In case the rigid plate is made of metal, it is preferably made of steel or aluminum. The roof covering element can still be provided with an insulating material on its underside 22. A rigid plate can be laid over an existing roof. The roofing element can also be provided with at least two flat electric solar cells, which are placed relative to each other such that these electric solar cells take the form of at least part of a roof tile. This electric solar cell can also be curved. It is also possible that the electric solar cell 4 is applied in layers during manufacture to the rigid plate 6. Various other manufacturing methods are also possible. It is also possible to apply a layer over the roofing element that ensures that an intensive and better distribution of the light gets on the solar cell. When various roofing elements are used to be assembled into a roofing material, the solar cells of these roofing elements can be connected in parallel and / or in series. Of course it is possible to store the electrical energy that remains in 20 batteries and / or return it to the electricity grid. The electric solar cell 4 can lie under, on or in the rigid plate 6. The liquid flow channel 30 can also lie under, on or in the rigid plate 6. It is also possible to couple these liquid flow channels of the various roofing elements to one another. Furthermore, it is also possible for the electric solar cell 4 to lie below or above the liquid flow channel. Furthermore, an insulated collector can also be mounted in or under the rigid plate 6, so that a separate storage vessel is not required. This collector is then integrated in the rigid plate. Furthermore, other methods of generating thermal energy are also possible. The roofing element can consist of prefabricated modular roof elements which can be easily joined together. An example of these modular roof elements, which can be joined on the roof, for example: 1009418 10 several regular roof tiles and a flexible solar cell with a Velcro system or an adhesive edge. It is also possible to collect rainwater; this water can be recycled if necessary.

Such variants and applications are each considered to fall within the scope of the invention. Separate modular roof elements, which can later be combined into the roof covering element according to the invention, are also considered to fall within the scope of the invention.
