Australia’s largest BIPV project completed08. December 2011 | Applications & Installations, Industry & Suppliers | By: Becky Stuart
Scheuten Solar has manufactured and delivered 600 custom-made glass-glass building integrated photovoltaic (BIPV) modules for Australia’s Carrara football stadium.
At 220 kilowatts peak, the system is said to represent Australia’s largest BIPV project to date.
The modules, which are located on the stadium’s inner rim, were installed by Stowe Australia, in cooperation with stadium building contractor, Watpac. Designer of the stadium, Popolous, meanwhile, integrated them into his design.
The BIPV paneling is five meters wide and spread across an area of 450 meters. Overall, the modules are expected to generate 20 percent of the stadium’s annual energy consumption.
"After a few smaller BIPV projects, the Carrara Stadium is now looked upon as a starting point for building integrated solar in Australia," said Scheuten in a statement released.
