Building Integrated Photovoltaics (BIPV)

Building-integrated photovoltaics (BIPV) are photovoltaic materials that are specifically used in order to replace the conventional building materials in the building envelope such as the roof,skylight,or facade etc.Generally,we can categorize the Building Integrated Photovoltaics into three types,also referred as Photovoltaic Generations.

  1. Mono Crystalline-BIPV
  2. Polycrystalline- BIPV
  3. Thin Cells-BIPV
  4. Dye-Sensitized Solar Cells 
  5. Innovative Solar Cells

Tailor -Made BIPV

Innovative BIPV modules are tailor made to architectural requirements with individual design in terms of the material’s property like thickness/insulation, shape color or optimal structure.We can create an environmental friendly envelope of yours own building by combining the photovoltaic cells regarding the types of the material.A unique facade can be designed by using opaque or transparent solar modules,with different levels of light transmission.This is also possible to produce the desired profiles and channels in order to place all the cables neatly behind the modules.

Innovative BIPV debunk the Myth

Solar doesn’t work in cool,cloudy,or foggy climates ?

Solar cells convert energy as long as there is sunlight.Although the photovoltaics will work best in warmer weather and on clearer days,but this does not mean that power is not being produced.Photovoltaics work well in ambient light and produce significant energy in the fog or on cloudy days.In fact, solar cells  are almost equally efficient at both cool and hot temperatures.This might seem counter-intuitive but innovative solar cells such as ‘black silicon’ are as efficient in cold,foggy climates as in hot sunny ones.
However,the performance of the panels will likely be hindered mostly as the snow falls.Once the snow has ceased to fall,it is likely that the solar modules will remain clear and able to absorb the energy.
