BIPV - Building Integrated Photovoltaics

The Commission is in the process of updating some of the content on this website in light of the withdrawal of the United Kingdom from the European Union. If the site contains content that does not yet reflect the withdrawal of the United Kingdom, it is unintentional and will be addressed.

Following the European Commission’s data, buildings are responsible for 40 % of final energy consumption and 36 % of CO2 emissions in the EU. About the 75% of the existing buildings are energy insufficient while only 0,4-1,2% of the building stock is renovated each year, depending on the various Member States. According to SETA Network this opens a vast potential for efficiency gains in Europe as well as for the integration of renewable energies in buildings and cities, in particular solar building skins (building integrated photovoltaics - BIPV).

Edificio-fotovoltaico integrato tecnologie e sistemi su larga scala per il mercato della distribuzione     Building-integrated photovoltaics (BIPV) è attualmente un ampio mercato. Uno dei principali driver è sempre più esigenti normative in materia di prestazione energetica degli edifici.   Tecnologie per le energie rinnovabili, e in particolare l'integrazione dei sistemi fotovoltaici negli edifici offrono la possibilità di giocare un ruolo importante all'interno della Quasi Zero Energy Building (NZEB) scenario.

Retrofitting a district is quite different from retrofitting a single building as the technological challenges involved are far greater.The Cuarto de Marzo district of Valladolid, Spain is an area spreading over 21,000 square metres with 166 residences. It is now the focus of a retrofitting project called R2CITIES which is funded by the EU. Its objective: a 60% reduction in energy consumption in individual buildings and the district as a whole.
