 Building-Integrated Photovoltaic Systems: Enabling Net-Zero Energy Performance and Beyond

 

Jan. 2018 - Chicago

How to Accelerate Architectural Solar in the US Market:

From Building-Integrated Photovoltaic to Building Component

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.
