Infrastructure Integrated PV
Rationale for support
With infrastructure integrated PV (IIPV) we mean the integra- tion on or into infrastructural functional objects such as road pavement, noise barriers, crash barriers, dikes, landfills, flyo- vers and road roofing. In all these applications, the primary functionality of the infrastructural object is leading. This pri- mary functionality may be safe traffic, safety against flooding, waste storage or noise reduction. The challenge for the de- velopment and implementation of IIPV is to design integrat- ed solutions that are technically and economically feasible.
A modest amount of IIPV projects on landfills and into noise barriers have been realised, and even fewer on IIPV in crash barriers, flyovers, road surfaces, dikes and road roofing.
