The Leaf Roof project on the design features of PV roof tiles using Luminescent Solar Concentrator (LSC) technology has resulted in a functional prototype . The results are presented in the context of industrial product design with a focus on the aesthetic aspects of LSCs. This paper outlines the design of Leaf Roof tiles under consideration of simulation results, experimental measurements on dyes’ absorption spectra, and the energy performance of Leaf Roof elements in the context of their geometry and colors.
