Analysis of the Technological Innovation System for BIPV in Sweden

The market for Building Integrated Photovoltaics (BIPV) in Sweden is still a niche market, with integrated roof systems for residential buildings as the most established application. The legitimacy of BIPV in the construction sector and in public administration is limited due to technical concerns and low awareness of the technology’s benefits.

The main recommendations outlined in this report to stimulate the development of BIPV in Sweden are:

    • to increase diversity and focus of BIPV actors;
    • to improve technical guidance and assurance for BIPV installations;
    • to level the playing field between BIPV and other PV applications;
    • to promote cultural change in the construction and real-estate sectors;
    • and to enhance social networks.
