SQUARE - Brussels Meeting Centre, Brussels, Belgium

BIPV – Bridging the Gap between PV Industry Supply and Construction Industry Demand

jointly with the International Energy Agency Photovoltaic Power Systems Programme (IEA PVPS) – IEA PVPS Task 15 and the Zuyd University of Applied Science

Day: Tuesday, 26 September 2017
Time: 13:30 - 16:45
Site: Auditorium G106, First Floor
Access: Open to all registered participants

BIPV is seen as one of the key development tracks of PV towards mass application. One of the main challenges for the BIPV community is bridging the gap between the highly innovative and fast changing PV supply side and the solid construction industry demand side. In this interactive seminar, a number of international players from both the BIPV community and the construction industry will present the gaps and provide bridges to facilitate the increase of BIPV deployment.

As an official event of the 33rd EU PVSEC, this parallel event is jointly organised with IEA PVPS Task 15, Zuyd University of Applied Sciences, and the EU PVSEC.
