One of the most promising areas for the application of photovoltaics (PV) is that of building integration. The technology necessary to incorporate PV into traditional building projects is by and large well established (steel or aluminium framed glass or frameless laminates are already common place in the building sector) but the benefits (both ecological and economic) of PV to these types of applications are still very unclear. There is a strong need to demonstrate not only the PV building integration is a nice idea but that it can bring clear benefits to the end user, the project designer and society.
