From niche to mainstream: the keys to making BIPV happen today

Building-integrated photovoltaics (BIPV) are a symbiosis between clean energy generation and design that could turn future buildings into generation hubs, thereby creating new revenue streams while helping cover our net-zero emissions targets.

The ever-improving design and aesthetic diversity of solar panels means our need for solar to play a bigger part of our built environment is now a reality. Buildings that generate their own energy via BIPV have been on the cusp for years, but mainstream success is here thanks to new innovations, improved aesthetics, and continued incremental cost decreases.

This pv magazine Webinar will investigate how BIPV companies and stakeholders such as architects, the construction sector, smart city initiatives and regulations, and more, can work together, to create generating assets from large buildings in urban environments and commercial applications, to residential environments.

Jinko Solar will also present its new Curtain Wall series, an offering set for launch in the Middle-East and North Africa (MENA) region, with customized designs, colors, styles, and power outputs (245W-676W).

Join this pv magazine Webinar to hear from leading BIPV developers, users and architectural technology design experts in a discussion about the building facades of the future that are happening today.

pv magazine Webinar content:

  • BIPV Developments & Applications in Green Buildings
  • BIPV Architectural Design and Material Focus
  • BIPV Market Outlook
  • BIPV market opportunities in MENA, Sub-Saharan Africa and Europe.
  • Jinko Solar’s Curtain Wall Series
  • Q&A

Questions can be submitted beforehand or during the webinar through a chat window. Blake Matich and Tristan Rayner from pv magazine will be the co-moderators of this webinar.

Registration for this pv magazine Webinar is free of charge.

Speakers

Waleed K. AlHallaj | Business Development Manager – MENA, Jinko Solar

Waleed AlHallaj has over eight years of experience in the EPC, Development and Manufacturing sectors of the Photovoltaic industry around the MENA region.

Samira Jama Aden | Architect, Helmholtz-Zentrum Berlin’s BAIP consultancy for BIPV

Samira Jama Aden is an architect and works at the convergence of art, architecture and new technologies. As an architect, she developed innovative, multifunctional building materials for architecture and construction. At the same time, she was a researcher and teacher in solar activation of building materials at the research platform "Bau Kunst Erfinden" of the University of Kassel and the ARC Australia Center of Excellence in Exciton Science (Melbourne, Australia). In her work, she combines the principles of renewable energies, architecture and material design with the aesthetic requirements of future buildings.
