From Building-Integrated Photovoltaic to Building Component

Chris Klinga - ASA Technical Director

Building Integrated Photovoltaic modules (BIPV) are considered to be building–integrated, if the PV modules form a construction product providing a function as defined in the European Construction Product Regulation CPR 305/2011. Thus the BIPV module is a prerequisite for the integrity of the building’s functionality. If the integrated PV module is dismounted, the PV module would have to be replaced by an appropriate construction product. 
ASA Webinar: Wednesday,
April 12th @ 11 am EST, 5 pm CET

Presenters include:

Christopher Klinga P.E., ASA Technical Director will provide a quick look at readily available tools and techniques for Architects, Engineers, and PV System Designers. 

Philippe Alamy with EnerBIM will provide an overview of an exciting new software, BIMsolar ®. BIMsolar ® is an integrated BIM software platform that provides a quick visualization of the multi-functional benefits of BIPV. 

Renato Macconi, ASA EU Manager and Owner of EnergyGlass will review a real-world example that has been modeled by BIMsolar ® and compares it to actual data that has been collected.
