Joint our webinar on BIPV components - April 27th

Europe has an urgent need to make its building stock more energy efficient and smarter. Additionally to the increasingly demanding legislation related to energy performance in building there are significant technological advances to surpass the key requirements related to the flexibility in design and aesthetics considerations, the demonstration of long-term reliability and the compliance with legal regulations and cost effectiveness.

Building-Integrated Photovoltaics (BIPV) is currently a growing market worldwide, with an estimated compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 18.7% and a total of 5.4 GW installed between 2013 and 2019 (Transparency Market Research, 2014).

This webinar will present a set of standardized, multifunctional photovoltaic building components fully architecturally integrated, based on an innovative technology for solar cells encapsulation within glass fiber-reinforced composite materials. These are monolithic and lightweight structures, highly versatile in terms of geometries, shapes, colors and surface finish.
