Building-integrated photovoltaics (BIPV) is a key example of an application of solar cells. Increasingly conventional solar cells are being incorporated into the construction of new buildings as a source of electrical power and existing buildings are retrofitted with solar cell technology.
Polymer solar cells are uniquely advantageous for building integration. Their low weight ensures that buildings retrofitted with the technology are only insignificantly burdened. Striking solar cell designs and colors allows a unique freedom for architects who can freely envision curves and contours which the polymer solar cells can easily accommodate.
In this catalog of examples we showcase examples of building integration from our customers and from our own designs. Feel free to browse the pages for inspiration.
