RP1003: Status Report and Directions on Integrating PV with Building Products

Project leader name: 
Prof. Stuart Wenham, UNSW
Project status: 
Project period: 
02/2013 to 07/2013

PV represents a great opportunity for buildings, with the potential to add value to any type of construction. It can have many applications including electricity generation, daylighting, shading, thermal energy generation as well as innovative architectural and aesthetic design.

This study is based upon a thorough, state of the art investigation to identify the opportunities and barriers taking into account technical, economical, industrial, work organisation and regulation matters. It will include analysis to establish functional specifications and to give the proper framework for innovation. Finally, it will disclose a report of the prospects for BiPV and propose a roadmap.
