Is pure BIPV destined to remain as a small niche market?

Post by admin »

Pure BIPV (in which we are talking about PV panels on facades, canopies and walls) sounds exciting as we are making use of all the surface area of a building but owing to the poor yields of BIPV compared to rooftop solar the overall economics for BIPV are relatively quite unattractive.

So far, BIPV has remained a very small niche even within distributed solar PV, leave alone the entire solar PV market that includes utility solar PV power plants.

Will BIPV remain a small niche in the future too? Or is there something that could turn around its prospects?
