Photovoltaics in Architecture
Building Integrated Photovoltaic solutions are used for the replacement of conventional construction materials from different parts of the building’s exterior such as skylights, façades, windows, curtain walls, roofs or floors. Integration of solar energy production into the fabric of the architecture ensures that energy efficiency can be achieved in a fashion sympathetic to the design intent and aesthetic of the building itself.
- Minimal appearance
- Cost factored into building construction
- Photovoltaics replace existing construction materials, not in addition to
- Low maintenance
