BIPV – Bridging the Gap between PV Industry Supply and Construction Industry Demand

Tuesday, 26 September 2017
13:30 - 16:45
Amsterdam, the Netherlands
RAI Convention & Exhibition Centre
Auditorium G106, First Floor

BIPV is seen as one of the key development tracks of PV towards mass application. One of the main challenges for the BIPV community is bridging the gap between the highly innovative and fast changing PV supply side and the solid construction industry demand side. In this interactive seminar, a number of international players from both the BIPV community and the construction industry will present the gaps and provide bridges to facilitate the increase of BIPV deployment.

As an official event of the 33rd EU PVSEC, this parallel event is jointly organised with IEA PVPS Task 15, Zuyd University of Applied Sciences, and the EU PVSEC.
