Task 15: International BIPV Workshop

Monday, 5 February 2018
12:45 - 17:30
Tokyo Tech, Tokyo, Japan,

BIPV has attracted attention from both electric (PV) companies and construction companies since a long time. BAPV has established markets in Japan, EU and US, since the standard size modules are applicable. Nevertheless, BIPV products are basically custom made and need to meet two different requirements as electronic products and as construction products. Meeting these different requirements has been forming a market barrier for a long time. In this workshop, knowledge, experience, current status and outlook on BIPV will be presented by global experts in BIPV, aiming at development of BIPV markets and industries.
