LIFE BIPV aims to demonstrate innovative BIPV installations in buildings located in two EU regions with different climatic characteristics.
N-tech also forecasts a CAGR of around 30 per cent in BIPV installed capacity, from around 200MW in 2017 to around 2,300MW in 2026.
According to the Architectural Solar Association (ASA), tailoring global regulations for this specific landscape is the key to encouraging a mass adoption of BiPV in the region.
AGC Solar is committed to 'empowering solar efficiency' and is expanding its BIPV product line with the launch of Sudare powered-by-Solaria BIPV to unlock solar power potential in Japan and South East Asia.
In an interview with pv magazine, Rafic Hanbali commented on the completed projects and highlighted the main advantages of the Emirates Insolaire's BIPV solutions, such as less demand on horizontal required space:
The semi-transparent BIPV facades produce electricity, reduce solar heat gain and facilitate daylighting schemes that save lighting energy consumption and lower cooling requirements.
The multiwall Lexan BIPV panels can reduce energy consumption by up to 17% when compared with traditional double-pane glass glazing.
Created through a close collaboration between Sabic and Solbian Energie Alternative, an innovative flexible photovoltaic (PV) production company, Lexan BIPV panels combine tough, lightweight, transparent Lexan Thermoclea PC sheet with flexible PV laminated crystalline cells from Solbian and are available in a broad range of structures, configurations and colours," it added.
The potential for BIPV needs to be considered within the context of the new European Building Directive from 2010 (Directive 2010/31/EU), which is of special relevance with respect to achieving European renewable energy goals.
Another important benefit of Lexan BIPV panels is light weight that can make them less expensive to transport and facilitates easy and fast assembly.
I have been working on the design of these systems in partnership with one of the largest roofing suppliers in the UK and am pleased to say that our BIPV product is now in production.
In the area of BIPV, four members of our management team were selected to serve on China's national BIPV technical standard committee to make the overall developing plan for BIPV technology of China.
