Solar cells (photovoltaics, PV) for electricity generation is forecasted to become one of the main contributors in the future energy system. Better building integration of PV (BIPV) is desired for aesthetical reasons and potentially also for cost savings. As of now, BIPV is generally more expensive than ordinary building applied PV installations (BAPV) or regular building components, which means there is a need to include other values in BIPV business models.
