Description

Photovoltaic Integrated

Photovoltaic modules architectonic integration, also named “Solar Architecture” or “BIPV” (Building Integrated Photovoltaics), is defined as the installation of those photovoltaic modules that keep a double function; energetic and architectonic (cotaing, enclosure or shading) and replace conventional constructive elements too or can be constituents elements of the architectonic composition.

 

Solar Innova BIPV photovoltaic modules line has been developed considering engineers and architects to provide them of modules that can be integrated functionally and aesthetically into facades and roofs where simultaneously serve as an architectonic material and energy generator.

Effective Architecture

The latest technological developments in photovoltaic allow nowadays possible to integrate photovoltaic panels on the surfaces of buildings and building components, leading to a new photovoltaic application, called BIPV (Building Integrated PhotoVoltaic).

 

The photovoltaic solar glass is an innovative building material high technology; Perfectly Integrating solar photovoltaic cells in a glass structure.

 

Replaces the traditional building materials; PV is an integrated production system in buildings, providing clean power to the building and bringing the production cost alternatives energies to conventional energy.

 

Photovoltaic systems have BIPV starting with the great advantage that they are, today, the renewable energy electricity production best suited to cities and public environments, thanks to its silent features of production and clean. Under these assumptions and considering the growing awareness about the environment, the future which promises to BIPV (Building Integrated Photovoltaics) facilities is really promising.

Technology

Solar Innova technology shows the latest technological advances in the field of photovoltaic integration, this is intended to cover all our customers' needs and provide a customized solution.

 

In the photovoltaic sector, BIPV systems are classified as completely different to conventional facilities on-grid (photovoltaic plants on deck and on land with or without solar tracking). Although they share some common features, they differ in the purpose for which they are designed.

 

In conventional photovoltaic systems is the idea of financial product, which disburses capital investor, it pays and gets a profit after a period of time. All the energy generated is fed to the grid and purchased by utilities. This raw power is undoubtedly true subsidy of the installation, which makes it a profitable and viable product.

 

By contrast, in the BIPV installations there are other values ​​that prevail over the economic performance, such as innovation, modernity, integration with the environment, aesthetics, etc.

Design

Solar Innova modules are made to measure according to individual customer specifications, with a custom design both in terms of shape, color and visual layout. Unlike standard photovoltaic modules, these modules can perform the same functions as the previous in all areas of the facades of buildings, not only in decks or flat surfaces.

 

The facades and skylights Solar Innova, plus efficient power generation, minimize the visual impact of PV systems integrated into the design of the building and providing new aesthetic possibilities.

 

Solar Innova modules ensure compliance with the highest quality standards in terms of safety, comfort and design.

 

These transparent photovoltaic modules have two major advantages: let in light and integrated into the glass building. The system applies to any construction, is particularly suitable for commercial, required to install photovoltaic and thermal solar energy in new construction sites.

Benefits

The benefits obtained from the photovoltaic architectural integration are not only economic derived from the production of clean electricity; but also you from projecting a tangible image of innovation, future and ecology in every new building project.
