Efficient solutions for sustainable energy generation in buildings

In accordance with EU construction guideline “2010/31/EU”, from 2021 every new building in EU member states must be constructed as a “nearly zero energy building” with a largely compensated overall energy efficiency. In this context, the federal government of Germany is aiming to make a climate-neutral building economy a reality by 2050.

Against his background, the Schüco BIPV (Building Integrated Photovoltaics) photovoltaic modules provide efficient solutions for sustainable, future-ready property that is beneficial to investors, operators and the environment.

Within the context of the German energy-saving regulations (EnEV), the electricity generated in the modules may be subtracted from the calculated power requirements, which results in primary energy requirements that are as low as possible.

The use of BIPV modules in the façade is therefore not only a visible sign of environmental protection and sustainability, but also a key component for achieving nearly zero, zero or plus-energy buildings.

Planning benefit

  • Black cell connectors, black foil and coloured cells for a varied opaque appearance or a semi-transparent BIPV module look
  • Variety of inside and outside views can be designed
  • The size, format and construction of BIPV modules is flexible: with a single pane of glass, laminated glass as well as variants with triple insulating glass or safety glass
  • Different crystal structures: polycrystalline cells with iridescent structure, monocrystalline cells with uniform surface
  • Wide spectrum of use in Schüco systems: ventilated façades, ventilated/non-ventilated façades, non-ventilated façades, skylight constructions, canopies, sun shading, balconies, conservatories
