Beautiful Solar Cladding on a high rise building

Photo Voltaic (PV. Solar Panels) have been one of the most successful renewable energy and carbon saving technologies of the decade for producing pollution free electricity on site. 

The new generation of P.V. Building Integrated Photovoltaic (BIPV) are designed for integration into the fabric envelope of the building.  The advantages are greater efficiency, improved aesthetics, reduced mechanical load on the building structure and less fabric penetrations.  

The traditional methods of mounting when energy is required for a building have previously been.

New technology…

The on-site production of solar electricity is typically greatest during the time of a building's and utility's peak loads. The solar contribution reduces energy costs for the building owner with an option to sell the exported solar electricity to the utility grid in return for a financial reward.

B.I P.V is available in a variety of forms roof cladding, roof tiles, facade cladding, windows, Sol Brie. B.I.P.V is suitable for both new build, retro-fit and the emerging solar car park market.

Solar Cladding enables vibrant architecture to stand out and make a statement whilst generating free non-polluting energy from the sun.

A Building Integrated Photovoltaic (BIPV) system consists of integrating photovoltaic modules into the building envelope, such as the roof or the facade. By simultaneously serving as building envelope material and power generator, BIPV systems can provide savings in materials and electricity costs, reduce use of fossil fuels and emission of ozone depleting gases, and add architectural interest to the building.

CIS Tower in ManchesterEngland  was clad in PV panels at a cost of £5.5 million. It started feeding electricity to the National Grid in November 2005.

While the majority of BIPV systems are interfaced with the available utility grid, BIPV may also incorporate battery storage and be used in stand-alone, off-grid systems.
