Essentially, Building Integrated Photo Voltaic (BIPV) refers to photovoltaic cells and modules which can be integrated into the building envelope as part of the building structure, and therefore can replace conventional building materials, rather than being installed afterwards.
Benefits of Building Integrated Photovoltaic (BIPV)
Noise protection (up to 25 db sound dumping is possible)
Thermal insulation (heating as well as cooling)
Improving the efficiency of cells by cooling through rear ventilation
