Bringing down costs of BIPV multifunctional solutions and processes along the value chain, enabling widespread nZEBs implementation
Start date: 01.10.2018
Duration: 56 months
Budget: 8.84 M€
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.
