WHAT'S BIPVBOOST PROJECT?
BIPV refers to building elements that, together with their role as building cladding, produce renewable solar energy thanks to PV integration.
The overall ambition of the BIPVBOOST project focuses on bringing down the cost of multifunctional building-integrated photovoltaic (BIPV) systems, limiting the overcost with respect to traditional, non-PV, construction solutions and non-integrated PV modules.
This will be done through an effective implementation of short and medium-term cost reduction roadmaps addressing the whole BIPV value chain and demonstration of the contribution of the technology towards mass realization of nearly Zero Energy Buildings.
At least 17 demonstrated innovative solutions will result from the successful implementation of the BIPVBOOST project. Together with the large involvement from industrial partners in the consortium, a sound basis will be to pursuit a 50% reduction of additional cost of BIPV modules in 2020 and 75% reduction in 2030, and thus a substantial increase of market deployment of BIPV technology.
BIPVBOOST has been awarded by the European Commission in 2018 as a new Innovation Action at European level, funded under the Horizon 2020 programme.Learn more
From the current regulatory framework, it arises the need to identify a new “multi-disciplinary” approach in order to set reference performance levels and new test methodologies suited to assess the quality of PV in building skin. This report provides an overview on the current normative framework, including the definition of some relevant missing gaps and a roadmap to define new reference procedures for BIPV products qualification, as the basic ground for next developments in the coming years.Download

BIPVBOOST PARTNERS AND LOCATION
Led by TECNALIA, BIPVBOOST will be implemented by a multidisciplinary team of 19 partners from 7 European countries involving industrial and research partners.
“BIPV as flexible, reliable and cost-effective technology”
BIPVBOOST will ensure that the above message is heard by the different members of the BIPV community: BIPV technology providers, construction product manufacturers, architects, designers, engineers, prescribers, scientific community, investors, certification bodies and policy makers.
To this end, BIPVBOOST will organize online dissemination and on-site training in the demo sites. If you are interested in participating, get involved now and receive all the news from the project through our newsletter.
