BIPV Modules

Building-integrated photovoltaics (BIPV) refers to the concept of integrating photovoltaic elements into the building envelope, establishing a symbiotic relationship between the architectural design, structure and multi functional properties of the building materials and the generation of renewable energy.The photovoltaic (PV) modules thus replace conventional construction materials, such as glass, taking over the function that these would otherwise perform whilst also including the additional function of energy production. Although this idea is not a new concept, it has until recently not been widely adopted due to the extensive planning and architectural challenges and an inertia in the building trade, one that Polysolar aims to change.


Benefits of Building Integrated Photovoltaic (BIPV)

Noise protection (up to 25 db sound dumping is possible)Future Business Centre solar facade

Thermal insulation (heating as well as cooling)

Improving the efficiency of cells by cooling through rear ventilation

Visual cover/ refraction (one-way mirroring visual cover)

Electromagnetic shielding

Aesthetic quality (integration in buildings as a design element)

Safety (safety glass function is possible)

Weatherproof (waterproof and windproof façade or roof of a building)

Sun protection/ shadowing
