Press release


As the costs of photovoltaics decrease, it makes more and more sense to focus on solutions to better integrate them into our buildings and infrastructure" - commented Marko Topic, Chair of the PV Platform. "Some building-integrated photovoltaic technologies are still more expensive than simple PV; however, taking into account their multiple functionality, already today BIPV applications can be more interesting than conventional building elements that do not produce electricity" - he continued

Minutes


The idea sounds simple: buildings may be made of structural components exposed to the sun, so why not build a PV-generating capability into them? If a PV-enabled building element looks better than a non-PV-enabled one, architects will adopt it and it will fetch a premium. Equally, the electricity it produces has a value that should also be taken into account in the price of the component.
