UK-based BIPV specialist Romag has developed a one hour session titled Integrated Photovoltatics which has been certified by the UK’s Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA).
This Frost & Sullivan research service titled Building Integrated Photovoltaics: Technology Market Penetration and Roadmapping offers insights on the roadmap and penetration prospects of building integrated photovoltaics (BIPV). The study provides recommendations for stakeholders to enhance their penetration in the market along with an overview of key drivers and challenges, region-wise technology adoption and demand-side analysis. In this research, Frost & Sullivan's expert analysts thoroughly examine the following: first generation PV technologies and second generation thin film technologies.
NanoMarkets has announced the addition of a new report addressing Building Integrated Photovoltaics (BIPV) to its schedule. The report titled, “The Business Case for Building Integrated Photovoltaics” will be released the week of December 20, 2010.
Combining solar technology with conventional building surfaces is one ideal way that has been around a while to make renewable energy more common and cost effective.
The use of wide expanses of glass in modern, energy-efficiency focused architecture requires holistic planning as well as multi-disciplinary cooperation between architects, technical planners and facade installers. For some years now glass has characterised modern architecture like no other material. Provided they are incorporated in an overall planning concept in line with their performance potential, glass materials not only characterise the appearance of facades but also make a decisive contribution to the energy efficiency of buildings.
The Solar Energy Industries Assocation's (SEIA) take on building integrated photovoltaics (BIPV).
‘Photovoltaics’ is the guide for designing building-integrated photovoltaics for those interested in PV technology, architecture and installation. DETAIL believes that it is now time to break open the difficult and complex relationship between high quality architecture on the one side and the requirements of energy-conscious structural engineering the other so that a new language of design can arise
Building-integrated photovoltaics or BIPV is one form of solar electricity that looks set to dominate the solar market in the coming years. The increase in BIPV installations is already evident in some European countries as governments begin to tweak their policies in order to provide a platform for this technology...
