Building-integrated photovoltaic (BIPV) are photovoltaic materials that are used to replace conventional building materials in parts of the building envelope such as the roof, skylights, or facades. They are increasingly being incorporated into the construction of new buildings as a principal or ancillary source of electrical power, although existing buildings may be retrofitted with BIPV modules as well. The advantage of integrated photovoltaics over more common non-integrated systems is that the portion of initial cost of building material & labor can be offset with the BIPV modules. These advantages make BIPV one of the fastest growing segments of the photovoltaic industry.
Building-Integrated Photovoltaic modules are available in several forms and can be integrated in form of flat roofs, pitched roofs, glazed roof or façade of the structure. Integration of Photovoltaic into building envelopes offers architects, planners and developers the option of combining building architecture with intelligent provision for utilization of solar energy. In addition to leaving investors scope for retrieving the incurred costs in the long term, it also gives them significant opportunity to enhance their repute.
