IEA PVPS Task 15: Enabling Framework for the Acceleration of BIPV (Working period 2024 - 2027)

Photovoltaics in general, and thus also the integration of photovoltaics into buildings (BIPV), represents a key component in the energy system of the future. The issues of land consumption for PV and dual use are now making BIPV increasingly important. Solutions for photovoltaics integrated into the building envelope are therefore increasingly becoming the focus of the construction industry.
