Future Trend

垂直式太阳能发电外墙板 (Vertical Solar PV)

随着太阳能技术发展日新月异,太阳能板将日渐融入建筑整体设计,未来的太阳能摩天大楼,实际上可能是铺满玻璃太阳能板的节能零碳建筑,除了大大减少空调与电力成本,也能让一般的大楼变成一栋零碳绿建筑 (无污染的清洁电力)。进一步发展,将来零碳建筑将发展成一座独立式太阳能发电站


With solar technology changing rapidly, solar panels are increasingly integrated into the overall design of the buildings on façade. / cladding, the future looks like a normal Skyscrap may actually be filled with glass solar panels of energy-saving zero-carbon buildings. In addition to significantly reducing air conditioning and electricity costs. Further evaluate and analyse of the potential of future eco-building, and it can be upgrade into a stand-alone local PV power plant. 

Although standard glass solar panels (BIPV) are currently more expensive, the prices will fall sharply once mass production begins. And the price of solar panels can be spread into the original building materials and installation costs that can also be included in the construction fortifications, combined with design and aesthetics. The demands in BIPV deployment will be widely increase and the modules are mostly become custom-built to architect specifications with individual designs in terms of shape, colour and visual structure. And solar windows are another good choice for design into BIPV Solutions beside Solar Façade.

Vertical Solar BIPV Façade Application Type

1.     Curtain Wall / Cladding System (Warm Façade)

2.     Rain Screen Façade (Cold Façade)

3.     Innovative Envelope System

4.     Skylight / Solar Glazing System (Sunshade)

5.     Canopy / Car Park Shelter

6.     Balcony / Parapet Wall / Vertical Fencing

7.     Solar Window

8.     Acoustic Shielding

9.     Thermal Isolation


Other BIPV (Architectural) Application Type

1.    Architectural Design (Structure Art).

2.    Outdoor Open Plaza (Floor mount)

3.    Pedestrian Walkway (Floor) / Pavement

4.    Bus Stops

5.    Street Lighting

6.    Garden Landscape


Solar facades / Solar Cladding (BIPV)

More and more high-rise buildings have been installed with Solar facades / cladding Photovoltaic System or Curtain Wall Photovoltaic System to generate free and clean energy and injected into the grid. As these BIPV modules that are installed onto the façade are not only a visible sign of environmental protection and sustainability, but also a key component for achieving nearly zero or surplus energy. One of the facades would be widely exposed to the sun at a time and interacts with the movement of the sun. Besides the BIPV generating solar power, the BIPV modules also acts as a thermal insulation, sound reduction and protection against the weather. With the ntegrating of the Photovoltaic into the Building envelope / cladding, this will improve the energy-efficiency with the building by reducing the air-condition and mechanical ventilation. This results in the reduce of GHG emissions.
