Capacity Building Environmental Design Solar Photovoltaic


This document provides an overview of BIPV (Building Integration PhotoVoltaic) for the benefits of countries participating in the PURE project, which are characterized with a high potential but low take-up (Spain, Portugal, Italy, Greece and Slovakia).
The document is a best practice guide that provide best practice examples and technical solutions on how photovoltaics can be integrated in buildings including roofs, windows, facades.


This document is available from the project website free of charge. It was published in 2008 so some of the legislative background it refers to might no longer be up-to-date
