    Solar As Form And Function

    The dawn of architectural solar

    David Beckham, January 3, 2017 (GreenBiz)

    “…[Over the past six years], solar power has exploded…[Less than 1 gigawatt of deployed solar in 2010 became over 30 gigawatts today]…due in large measure to a precipitous decrease in the cost…In short, solar technology is now settled science…[Resting on this] foundation sits the framework of the next generation of solar technology, architectural solar or as it is known in the industry, building integrated photovoltaics (BIPV)…It is not a solar panel attached to a structure but rather a typical building component such as a window, spandrel panel or other cladding component adapted to produce electricity…[It] is quite a bit more complex…[and its success requires] buy-in from building-owners, architects, construction companies, glaziers, building envelope suppliers and civil electrical contractors. Furthermore, until very recently, there has been no supply chain…[and] the construction industry has been reluctant to fully embrace architectural solar…[but architectural solar is expected to soon] become a standard practice on all new construction…” click here for more
