BIPV - Building-integrated photovoltaics. The photovoltaic panel is integrated into the building fabric rather than a 'tack-on' addition replacing conventional building cladding materials but with the added benefit of producing renewable electricity.
Polysolar's unique transparent PV solutions add a new dimension to BIPV by allowing and facilitating full PV building integration from façades to windows. With these technologies we anticipate that the future of PV is BIPV.
The key advantage of BIPV is that the marginal additional cost in installation is more than offset by the production of renewable energy, this is why BIPV is one of the fastest growing segments of the photovoltaic industry.
