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.
