Summary / Abstract:

The BIPV industry experiences the cost constraints that PV encountered before 2006: small quantities, higher prices, and challenges to mass production. How can BIPV reach the next level in terms of manufactured quantities? How to adapt the one-fits-all concepts of PV production to the need for flexibility that BIPV requires? How could PV equipment manufacturers play a major role in that development? These are the subjects that will be addressed in this session. The first part will address directly the challenges to mass production directly while the second part will highlight recent innovations in manufacturing BIPV products.
