Motivation & Impact
Building Integrated Photovolitacs (BIPV) are being incorporated into sustainable buildings more and more with prediction for a sustained growth. However, forecast have been consistently overestimated due to a variety of reasons, including costs, technical performance, aesthetics to name a few. These aspects as well as supporting elements such as hardware (inverter, batteries) and tools (BIPV embedded BIM, BEMS to maximize the use of on-site generated electricity) are being developed and demonstrated in a range of building types.
