European Union's Horizon 2020 project

Overall goal of the H2020 BIPVBOOST project is bringing down costs of building-integrated photovoltaic (BIPV) solutions and processes along the value chain, enabling the compliance with the main market requirements and contributing to a widespread implementation in nZEBs. BIPV market hindered by the difficulties of the industry in providing holistic solutions complying with key demands from the market: aesthetics, flexibility of design and manufacturing, cost-effectiveness.

BIPVBOOST will implement short-and medium-term cost reduction roadmaps along the BIPV value chain by means of:

  • flexible and automated BIPV manufacturing process
  • large portfolio of multifunctional BIPV products
  • digitalized process and energy management system along the value chain
  • advanced testing activities supporting the qualification of BIPV systems for a massive market implementation.

SUPSI, along with other partners, will focus on developing new multifunctional product tecnologies, defining new testing procedures to better support the market implementation and defining a new approach in information management strategies by also developing new BIM-based platforms.



This project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement Nº 81799.
