BIPV: Integrating Solar Technology into Building Elements

BIPV

Climate change continues to be a major worry in worldwide politics, economics, and scientific research, especially in the architecture and building industries. This increased responsibility for the area of architecture arises from the fact that the construction industry accounts for 40% of global emissions, and demand for buildings is only expected to climb by 70% by 2050.

Renewable energy is an element of a 21st-century sustainability paradigm that responds to climate change and environmental degradation, boosting global energy transformation momentum. Renewable energy production solutions are required to address future energy security challenges as traditional sources of fuel become increasingly scarce, and they are an integral aspect of architectural sustainability design.

Ornate Solar, an exclusive distributor of Canadian Solar, has produced novel technologies that may be adapted and integrated critically and creatively to handle new and age-old challenges related to issues of sustainability, to address growing global concerns about climate change and renewable energy.

Solar energy harvesting has traditionally been expensive, inefficient, and impeded by bad design. Due to design limitations and poor aesthetics, existing building-integrated photovoltaics (BIPV) have proven to be less practical and economically unfeasible for large-scale implementation. New building design and construction techniques and technology are assisting architects in the production of structures that generate their energy and are self-sustaining.

Ornate Solar systems can be integrated into a building envelope to generate energy while also improving the spatial, aesthetic, and functional elements of a design project. They can be used to replace all or part of the building envelope, including facades, skylights, roof regions, and other external architectural features, and they generally cost the same as the materials they are replacing. Renewable energy systems can be integrated as functional, attractive, and cost-effective aspects within buildings from this perspective.

For example, the company has created lightweight solar cladding that can be tailored to any construction and design requirements, conform to desired angles and panel sizes, and mimic any material in the world, including natural finishes such as marble and wood, as well as man-made materials such as cement and porcelain.

These items, on the other hand, aren’t just for big businesses and pricey skyscrapers. Ornate Solar Roof is meant to blend in with typical roofing materials like asphalt and slate shingles while also producing renewable energy. Single-family homeowners can use the product to reduce their carbon footprint and reliance on the grid. Lower-density homes with solar roofs are not a new trend; however, current technical advancements allow builders and architects to include green initiatives into their designs without sacrificing the aesthetics of the home. Solar Roof systems are available in a variety of UV-stable, and patterns to match your decor. Fortunately, we are also providing professionals who are done the installation work, and their elements require no maintenance once placed because they are coated with an anti-soiling coating that prevents dust and grime from accumulating on surfaces.

Wherever they are deployed, these technologies have the potential to have a tangible impact on energy use and sustainability initiatives. The widespread use of building-integrated solar modules offers the potential to minimize a city’s carbon impact while also addressing rising energy demand and limited supply. To give you a better sense, a typical 30-story structure with Mitrex integrated solar technology generates around 13 million kWh of energy, which is enough to offset 9,500 metric tonnes of CO2 over 30 years. Large-scale adoption could have a historic influence.

However, due to lack of government support and public awareness, the BIPV system is rarely utilized in India. Also, the system is on the expensive side for the customers. One can go for Solar In-Roof structure, it is an innovative structure which can be used effectively to replace old roofs, making your space more energy-efficient and aesthetically pleasing and it will also, save your pocket from burning.

India’s First Integrated Roof Structure Case Study

This time, Ornate Solar came with a fresh solar-roof experience. Soon, we have installed a 40 KW solar plant erected in our corporate building Okhla. This solar plant’s structure has been designed as a roof, allowing solar panels to be installed in any unique structure that does not need any kind of rooftop area.

Benefits

  • You don’t have to rely on the roof in any way. You can customize it according to your requirement or area.
  • This solar plant can be easily dismantled so that you can use the same panels anywhere else.
  • Pests can crawl about and hide in racks that are hung on the wall. Birds love to make nests in the shade of solar panels that have been installed on the roof. With an integrated solar roof, pests have no place to burrow or reside.
