Watch now: The Future of PV - Building Integrated Photovoltaic Systems (BIPV)
As solar photovoltaic (PV) technology continues to mature, it is being increasingly integrated into building construction. PV technology replaces conventional materials in parts of the building envelope, such as roofs, curtain walls, and windows. As traditional roof installation costs continue to increase and PV prices decrease, Building Integrated Photovoltaics (BIPV) are gaining popularity.
Architects are now integrating the technology into their designs for aesthetic value while helping building owners save on their cost of electricity with environmentally friendly generation. BIPV helps comply with energy conservation and sustainability requirements and helps achieve Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Building certification. UL Solutions has taken an early leadership role in the testing and certification of buildings constructed with BIPV products and can help you maneuver the many complexities encountered with multiple safety certification.
