We offer Building Integrated Photovoltaic (BIPV) solutions that integrate photovoltaic elements into buildings to form building integrated photovoltaic systems.
Building photovoltaics integration is the PV integration of elements into the building, and building-integrated photovoltaics (BIPV) systems consists of the integration of photovoltaic modules into the building envelope, such as roof or facade. BIPV systems can use sunlight to generate electricity, provide electricity for buildings, reduce building carbon emissions and electricity costs, and increase the sense of technology in buildings.
Building-integrated photovoltaics (BIPV) are photovoltaic building materials that are used to replace conventional building materials in parts of the building envelope such as the roof, skylights, or facades. They are increasingly being incorporated into the construction of new buildings as a principal or ancillary source of electrical power, although existing buildings may be retrofitted with similar technology.
The advantage of BIPV integrated photovoltaics over more common non-integrated systems is that the initial cost can be offset by reducing the amount spent on building materials and labor that would normally be used to construct the part of the building that the BIPV modules replace. In addition, BIPV allows for more widespread solar adoption when the building’s aesthetics matter and traditional rack-mounted solar panels would disrupt the intended look of the building.
