Construct PV

The aim of the European Construct-PV project (www.constructpv.eu) is to develop and demonstrate the use of integrated photovoltaic systems (BIPV) for the opaque surfaces of the building envelope, incorporating features that are customisable, efficient and low cost. Construct-PV systems are marked by multi-functionality and, integrating the most promising technologies in terms of both the solar cell and the module, they are attractive to both the construction and the photovoltaics markets.

The project consortium includes internationally renowned leaders in the photovoltaics and construction sectors, as well as a number of different research institutes and one architecture studio.

The project is essentially based on an integrated approach that actively involves the various parties throughout the entire process, and, in this sense, also exploits the introduction of Building Information Modeling (BIM).
