Building Integrated Photovoltaics (BIPV)
Sustainable and energy efficient buildings
The EU Building Directive from 2021 requires a largely balanced energy balance (nearly zero energy) for new buildings. With the combination of highly thermally insulating building envelopes and the Schüco building-integrated photovoltaic system (BIPV), Schüco offers the right solutions. BIPV modules are not only a visible sign of environmental protection and sustainability, but are also an important component in the realization of low-, zero- and plus-energy buildings. The building-integrated photovoltaics take over a variety of functions of other building materials and elements such as weather protection, thermal insulation, sun and privacy protection as well as sound insulation, fire and burglary protection, while at the same time increasing the energy balance of the building by generating electricity.
