New production concept for building-integrated solar modules drastically reduces costs

Solar PV is an important element in global energy transformation. Current PV capacity has to be increased several times for successful implementation, with buildings playing a key role. In theory, buildings provide a more economically useful surface area than the required increase in PV capacity demands. However, building-integrated photovoltaics (BIPV) places high demands on solar PV module design in that a conflict often exists between sophisticated design, high module efficiency and low costs. A joint project funded by the German Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy, SCHMID and Fraunhofer ISE has examined the design limitations of BIPV as well as the existing standards, laws and technical regulations. The project also evaluated the effects of each of these factors on the module design with Fraunhofer ISE investigating the building stock and the associated ma...
