State of the art inBuilding Integrated Photovoltaics
Authors: Kostas Sinapis, Menno van den Donker
With pleasure I present the SEAC BIPV Report 2013.The Solar Energy Application Centre (SEAC) was founded in June 2012 byECN, TNO and Holland Solar. Our mission is to stimulate the developmentof the knowledge based economy on Solar Energy Systems andApplications in The Netherlands and neighboring regions (www.seac.cc).Building Integrated Photovoltaics (BIPV) is an emerging product categorywith a large market potential. A key aspect of BIPV is
.Value propositions of BIPV, apart from energy production, may be found ine.g. design, weather protection and shading. This makes the productattractive, also from a financial point of view.Over the past years, we have seen an enormous growth of available BIPVproducts on the market. Often these products are based on materials thatare common in architecture, such as glass or metal, in opaque as well asin semitransparent quality. More recently also some designs based on lowweight plastics have been tested.We expect that BIPV will evolve into a highly diversified product portfolio,with a sound economic perspective for a variety of products. As such, wesee BIPV as an important business opportunity for the Dutch privatesector.This opportunity - as well as other product-market combinations in thefield of Solar Systems and Applications - can be addressed and exploitedby means of an effective cooperation between companies, knowledgeinstitutes and government. We as SEAC want to play a key role in thiscooperation within the “BV Nederland”.The SEAC BIPV Report 2013 presents the BIPV state-of-the-art with morethan 80 representative examples. It is our intention to release a yearlyupdate of this report. I am confident that this report will help the readerto better understand BIPV and to get an overview of actual BIPV productsand current developments.December 2012Wiep FolkertsDirector SEAC
