Application and Development of Building-Integrated Photovoltaics(BIPV) System in China
Building integrated photovoltaics (BIPV) has potential of becoming the mainstream of renewable energy and has been identified as the most economical renewable energy resource to contribute to world electrical energy demand and to protect environment against pollution for fossil fuel consumption. The first installation of BIPV was realized in 1991 in Aachen, Germany. The photovoltaic elements were integrated into a curtain wall facade with isolating glass. Today, BIPV become more and more rapid development in China. In this paper, the present situation and development prospects of BIPV system in China are introduced, while the design rules, operation principle, the forms of BIPV and advantages are also discussed. Furthermore, an impressive MW-grade grid-connected BIPV installation, Shanghai Solar Energy Research Center (Shanghai, China) with more than 7000m2 of photovoltaics integrated into the roof and facade will be built in Shanghai this year. Its design, BIPV modules, grid-connected scheme and present situation are reported in this paper.
