How to Accelerate Architectural Solar in the US Market:

Chris Klinga - ASA Technical Director
Building Integrated Photovoltaic modules (BIPV) are considered to be building–integrated, if the PV modules form a construction product providing a function as defined in the European Construction Product Regulation CPR 305/2011. Thus the BIPV module is a prerequisite for the integrity of the building’s functionality. If the integrated PV module is dismounted, the PV module would have to be replaced by an appropriate construction product.
