Why is BIPV so popular?(part 1)

In recent years, photovoltaic buildings have sprung up all over the country, and have even become local high-quality green building benchmark projects.Now it has divided three parts to introduce BIPV to you in detail.

BIPV (Building Integrated PV), also known as building integrated photovoltaics, is a technology that integrates photovoltaic power generation products into buildings. Under the “double carbon” goal, the BIPV technology combining photovoltaics and buildings can not only meet the clean energy demand of buildings, but also meet the aesthetic and practical needs of buildings themselves. It has become the most concerned building carbon neutral technology in the construction industry in the past two years .

Why is BIPV so popular?(part 1)

What is unique about BIPV?

After special design, the photovoltaic panels are integrated with the building itself, which can replace traditional building roofs, curtain walls, exterior wall decoration surfaces, and even auxiliary structures such as balconies and fences. It not only meets the needs of light-transmitting and beautiful buildings, but also realizes green The function of power generation improves the clean energy consumption ratio of the entire project and reduces building energy consumption. Layers of policy support to promote the development of green buildings and photovoltaic buildings 115 favorable policies related to green building and BIPV issued from the state to the local level; since the beginning of 2022, the State Council , the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology, and the National Development and Reform Commission have intensively introduced The three policies all mentioned the promotion of building integrated photovoltaics or the application of photovoltaics. Guangdong, Chongqing, Shandong, and Hebei also introduced policies in the beginning of 2022 to support the development of green buildings and photovoltaic buildings.

the “14th Five-Year Plan for Housing and Urban-Rural Construction Science and Technology Development Plan” and “14th Five-Year Plan for Building Energy Conservation and Green Building Development issued by the Ministry of Housing and Urban-Rural Development in March this year , it was mentioned that the development of high-efficiency smart photovoltaic building integration Utilization , and put forward the specific goal of adding a new building solar photovoltaic installed capacity of more than 50 million kilowatts nationwide. The policy overweight is expected to usher in new development opportunities for the photovoltaic BIPV industry.

Development Prospects of Building Integrated Photovoltaics

Under the background of dual carbon targets, the application of photovoltaic power generation in buildings is an important path to achieve the goal of energy conservation and emission reduction, and the goal of carbon neutrality in the construction sector. Although BIPV has not been developed for a long time from its proposal to practice, and there is still a long way to go for technology application and optimization, but after national policies have been stepped up, domestic BIPV construction has achieved initial results. Many demonstration projects have been successfully completed, laying the foundation for promoting the application and development of solar photovoltaic technology in the construction field.

In the current context of carbon neutrality, combined with the experience accumulated in China’s existing typical excellent BIPV demonstration projects, we will actively promote the establishment and improvement of industry-related policies, regulations, technical standards and certification systems, and at the same time continuously strengthen the role of photovoltaic manufacturers. Innovative research and development capabilities will be an important development direction for China’s photovoltaic buildings, and it is also the path that must be taken to achieve the long-term goal of carbon neutrality in the construction field.
