EPIA - "Paving the way for building integrated photovoltaics"

Share this Post:
EPIA is organising a one-day conference on Building Integrated Photovoltaics (BIPV), in the framework of the Sustainability Forum which will be held during the international competition Solar Decathlon Europe 2010 in Madrid, Spain. The objective of this event is to provide a platform for discussion between the construction and PV sectors, as well as with policy makers.

The conference will be split into 2 main sessions:

  • PV diffusion in the Building Sector. "Streghtening the cooperation between the PV industry, architects and constructors"
  • Regulatory and economical aspects of BIPV

During the first session, the discussion will focus on the lastest BIPV technologies (PV glass facades, PV roof-tiles, flexible membranes), and the current and future market trends of the BIPV sector, analysing challenges and opportunities from all relevant actors' point of view.

During the second session, a panel discussion with representatives of the major EU PV markets will focus on best practices and lessons learnt from implementing policies for the development of BIPV in their country.
