Building Integrated PV

This work package aims at improving the cooperation between the photovoltaic and the building sector. Houses in Europe are customized and not prefabricated where a PV system can easily be integrated. It is our argument that PV systems constitute a reasonable alternative for construction materials to be considered by architects. In this case, Building-Integrated PV modules (BIPV) would not only generate electricity but would also represent an option of construction materials.
