IEA PVPS Task 15 Workshop at the 35th EU PVSEC

Tuesday, 25 September 2018
12:45 - 17:30
Brussels, Belgium

BIPV is seen as one of the key development tracks of PV towards mass application. As BIPV is still seen as an innovation in the construction industry, the large scale adoption still needs to be improved. Adoption in the construction industry depends on 4 elements; product characteristics, adopter characteristics, industry characteristics and the influence on the environment. In this workshop, the different elements for a successful adoption will be covered from different perspectives to generate insight how to successfully create an enabling framework for BIPV acceleration.
