The first polycarbonate (PC) building-integrated photovoltaic (BIPV) panels: Lexan™

As demand for solar power rises, SABIC is helping to drive the feasibility and integration of this increasingly preferred energy source with its innovative Lexan™ BIPV panels. These are the first polycarbonate (PC) building-integrated photovoltaic (BIPV) panels for roofing, cladding and glazing applications. They give architects and builders enhanced design freedom, thermal insulation, easy installation and energy production in a

Building Retrofit with Photovoltaics: Construction and Performance of a BIPV Ventilated Façade

Abstract Building retrofit offers the opportunity to reduce energy consumption, improve energy efficiency and increase the use of renewable energy sources. The photovoltaic (PV) technology can be integrated into the building envelope, where conventional construction materials can be easily substituted by PV modules. Prices are competitive with some other solutions and good architectural building integrated photovoltaics (BIPV) solutions enhance the

Thermal analysis of naturally ventilated BIPV system: Modeling and Simulation

Abstract This is the second part of a two-part study based on the thermal behaviour of a naturally ventilated BIPV systems. In the first part an experimental analysis of the thermal behaviour of a naturally ventilated BIPV system is presented and two new correlations for the estimation of the convective heat transfer coefficients in the air gap between the PV
