BIPV market and stakeholder survey: Summary of results

BIPV market and stakeholder survey: Summary of results

This short document summarises the results obtained from respondents to a BIPV market and stakeholder survey, which was carried out in the summer of 2016. The goal of the survey was to help the consortium to identify the BIPV market perspectives, including its trends, key drivers and challenges from the point of view of the different stakeholders. Key conclusions are provided at the end of the document.

Report: Standardization needs for BIPV

Report: Standardization needs for BIPV

This document describes the standard tests needed for the fourteen BIPV products to be developed in the framework of the project prior to their market introduction. A listing and a comprehensive analysis of standards concerning BIPV products is proposed. Based on this analysis, a specific testing plan is proposed to ensure that each BIPV product developed during the course of the PVSITES complies with the identified standards. The final goal is to ensure long term reliability and performance of the BIPV products.
